for quartz, there are a specific set of interactions with launch
services that would be very desirable to have integrated into
GtkApplication. right now, these are implemented in an "add-on" code
blob ("ige-mac-menu"), and/or as additional code in specific
applications. it would be sad to give up on the idea of these being
subsumed into GtkApplication. there is likely other integration with
the os x desktop that could be usefully done too.
