Gtk::Main is deprecated, so you should try not use it.

Gtk::Application, when used in its most simple way, is just a way to
initialize gtkmm. That is how it is used in the latest versions of most
gtkmm examples.

I don't think there is any "unique application/process" behaviour when
using Gtk::Application without overriding any of the appropriate virtual

hopefully will soon, but you don't need to worry about that if you
aren't interested in it.
