Hi, list

As an alternative to GUnique, you could do the kind of thing Maemo does
just by using D-Bus.

If "just by using D-Bus" means what I think it does, then all desktop
apps doing so are broken.  You need to handle startup-notification too
(gtk+ tries to handle startup-notification details for apps, but
single-instance apps do things behind gtk+'s back in order to be
single instance and thus require extra work).

(Crappy write-up, but I just haven't had time to sort it out. Sorry!)

GUnique already uses D-Bus (with bacon as a backup).  So, how is your
proposal different than GUnique?  (Other than startup-notification not
being mentioned in your proposal yet?)
