I must of missed this one. I'm not "up" on the internals of gdomap though too. I did try gdomap -N and even (gasp) gdomap -H. :-)

I was surprised that gdomap -N showed applications that were running by other users, even root. This intrigues me because it is not what I expected, I will have to look at the source for gdomap.

Perhaps another daemon is needed to keep track of which apps are

simple and straightforward to minimize bugs and crashing.

That sounds heavyweight -- for X11, wouldn't it make more sense to use
the existing protocols to implement that?

At about the same time last year I recommanded that gdomap could be the deamon keeping track of all the running GNUstep applications. It already does so, just type in "gdomap -N". We just would need to switch from an internal interface to a documented one. I did not get much feedback at the time.

But this specific deamon would not be able to do the other things that have been suggested.
