They do. They take the pilot_id as commandline argument.

Thats another problem, since the admin tool can't call run_configuration
without "instantiating" the conduit, and that requires giving it a
pilot_id as argument, which then ties that conduit to the given pilots
config. So the tool has to use all sorts of tricks, first loading all
conduits to get a list, destroying them and the reinstantiate when people
want to config.

Well, the only good that run_configuration does right now, is deciding of
the exec name to execute, but could be done with desktop entries in a
special conduits dir.
