This is a good step forward (basically the same thing as the current
workaround in Nautilus for this problem).

But what about out of process non-gui components, like the Evolution
wombat server, or config monikers or other stuff of that sort? Maybe

instance of this problem, but wouldn't it be better to come up with a
truly general solution?
