	It's very hard to compare a system that exists, and works with one that
does not.

	I'd point you at the code in eg. gnome-terminal/terminal.c that does
the uniqueness stuff - it's a handful of lines, but of course - if you
want to detect errors, do activation etc. you get to write more lines of
code. Either way it's a fraction of the code.

	Of course - we should have bonobo-activation tracking all apps, and
make that a standard feature of GnomeProgram. But of course, that would
be obstructed as soon as it's suggested - too similar to D/BUS.
