I'm not a user of git-mergetool or KDE, so I can't speak as an
end-user. My comment was made merely as a reviewer of the code.

If it is easy to avoid the behavior change by also checking
KDE_FULL_SESSION in addition to the new check of XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP
without it being a maintenance burden, then that sounds like a good
choice. On the other hand, if there wasn't a good way to avoid
changing behavior for users of older KDE, then explaining that in the
commit message would be expected.
