this is part of the problem here. GtkApplication was originally
floated as something a bit different than "just" what libunique did.
it increasingly feels as if it has morphed into nothing but a
repalcement for it. this may or may not be true, but that's certainly
the impression that discussions about it are creating.

from my own perspective, i wanted GtkApplication to be something that
would ease the task of integrating my app into "the desktop", whether
that desktop was a freedesktop implementation or quartz (or windows).
the functionality offered by libunique was (and is) of no interest to
me at all.
