	Sigh - of course; ideally bonobo-activation-server would live in the
module stack somewhere more sensible [ above gnome-vfs ] or something,
and be able to get FAM notifications on the .server directory [ or
something ].

	The option of having the server poll the directory on a timeout caused
pain for somebody [ AFAIR ] - but we could make the server have a little
timeout that did that every few seconds or so, I forget the problem with
