So - I've used gerrit for this:
I am not sure I want this in its current form but it's something
visible and anyone can comment now ;-)
I use Desktop class, and init TeleManager in there.
But registering clients (so you could get channels, files) is
happening now only when we run ./soffice --invisible.
This is probably not right thing to do.
Maybe I could let Listen button still work in addition.

It's associated to ScDocFuncSend.
But It does not work if we -
open another document | receive another channel -
between receiving channel and setting session for document belonging
to that channel.

Oh, well, I compile it again (because I use CreateScDocFunc again) and
need to do ugly things as exporting TeleManager_fileReceived.
