Honesty... I did OFI before I find out Galago.
IMHO there is really no additional daemon need as Galago propose.
As simple as possible interface with D-BUS is enought and I belive in
it. Developers may have objection using another one library as a depency
with another one interface and in addition oriented for GNOME which make
thinks stright in a way of "propably work only in GNOME and need GNOME
to work", it's not a way to favorite any of envineroment.
The think is to create possibly flexible interface to play with,
everything else start work when more developers will implement it, look
at other spec. Everybody now use .desktop file because it just flexible
enought and can be implemented independently. But you know all that
