Thanks!  It's good to know that we are thinking of the same thing.

If I'm not mistaken, your startup_id comes from
sn_launcher_context_get_startup_id(), correct?  And then the file
manager would do sn_launchee_context_new() and extract the parameters
from there?

Do we need a "display" argument at all?  I mean, does XFCE handle
sessions with more than one X display at a time?
