But I wonder if that's really an appropriate name, given that all that's in gapplication.c are 3 callbacks (there will be more callbacks when I'm done, but the guts of it need Objective-C and Cocoa calls).

the name came from a brief IRC discussion with kristian rietveld who
suggested that we really need a platform<->application integration
class for all platforms, not just OS X. which aspects of the class
would actually do anything on a given platform would vary, but the
idea was a single object that encapsulates all the ideas/abstractions
required for this integration.
