Via some interprocess communication, via a GtkApplication that makes
that easy? Obviously I can't recommend that apps do that now, hence this

Or maybe via some session-wide tracking of open files? I have no idea. I
haven't investigated how it's done elsewhere.

But my own idle speculation isn't helping me find a justification for
the current code.
