I have no idea why the launchd support works like this.

I would expect that it should work more like autolaunch:, with the
"launchd:,autolaunch:" when compiled with launchd support, and
"autolaunch:" when compiled without, or something like that.

See also <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=74029>, which as
far as I can see would be solved if launchd support behaved like a
normal transport.

See also <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=58601>, which
asks for a specification for this transport.
