There has been some though into how we can watch what has focus.
But we can probably only see what program (or rather window) has

Up until recently there weren't any C# bindings for D-BUS and at
the start of the year they went through an API change.  It may be
time to look at switching over to it again.

I still think we should support 5903 so frontends can be on other
machines on the LAN.  ie, I'd run Dashboard on my notebook, but display
the windows on my desktop (bigger screen) and run xchat on my desktop.
I'd like to have xchat feeding into Dashboard when it's running.
