I don't think it would make much sense; it would also have to be shipped
into libgobject - unless GApplication were made as a simple structure of
function pointers, but this would make the point of inheriting from it

As for unique instance applications: each IPC mechanism proposed for the
G_OS_UNIX case, except for the unix socket one, uses X or a X session in
some form (Xlibs and D-Bus); so it makes sense to have a single instance
application class inside GTK+.
