That was I mentioned in the original proposal.

However, the problem is, either we leave up to the client to know the 
right program to execute (a console client would fire up a console tool, 
a GUI client would fire up its desktop specific tool) or we force every 
distro to wrap the program to execute in a script that handles the 
environment (graphics mode, running desktop)
