Umm, I agree with the pid thing.  I am not sure about the ~/.gnome thing
but my feeling is that we should use the gnome config stuff and write a
config file.  Each queue item can be a section or something similar.

Oh, one other thing, how did we plan on doing auth for apps requesting a
service from global gpilotd?  The local stuff can just use ORB security,
but global gpilotd will need a bit more I think.  Any thoughts on this?
