Hi, as you may or may not know, we've been working on GNOME 3 in being
an "application based" system (background: ).  The
startup-notification spec was more or less designed around a tasklist.

This patch to the spec and to libstartup-notification allows launcher
programs to specify the .desktop file they're launching which
dramatically improves reliability of application tracking.
