Sure, wrap the actual DBus calls with a simplied sugar/python method
if you like, but *please* let's implement a listener for that API so
that unmodified applications can interact sensibly with Sugar, and so
that our system tools & activities can interoperate with non-Sugar
window managers.

Similarly, we should really implement that standard freedesktop.org
startup notification spec, so we can get sensible notifications and
icons for 'ordinary' applications.
