Making a singleton of NautilusApplication


As explained in my previous mail: "[PATCH] Jump To button in bookmark dialog always open browers window" that patch also solves some critical messages which were caused by the fact that nautilus_application_new is called again.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I guess that per process there should be only one instance of a NautilusApplication.

If so then I think it would be a good idea to make a singleton [1] of NautilusApplication. This will guarantee that there is only one instance of NautilusApplication and also access to the application object will be very simple. You can just call nautilus_application_get_instance as soon as you need the application object.

As far as I can see also of the NautilusShell there is only one object needed.

Do the maintainers also think making a singleton of NautilusApplication is a good idea?
