how would we include the wrapper program without having the
gnome-session part of it for 2.12?

I'm working on this now.

from all my tests, this is, IMO, ready to be tested for 2.12. So, I
would suggest we add the gnome-session conditionally compiled code (once
I finish it), make that the default so that we force people to test it,
and if big errors are found, come back to the old gnome-session thing by
