Integration between applications is needed if we wan to create a functional desktop and also in order to reduce memory consumption.
Right now how we set the proxy configuration for the whole desktop without closing the session? Should we make something similar to the mechanism to change the style? An alternative is to have a central configuration space where the application share data. Just like gsettings and his alternatives.
I want to introduce a weightless alternative that only share the environment variables, and notifies the modifications. It is based on debus and is divided in two parts a server an a client. It should run at the beginning of the session so it must be part of it. I'm wondering if you are interested in have such functionality. If so where should I put the code, in liblxqt or in liblxqt-common ? also lxqt-session shuld be modified
If I understand correctly your description, maybe lxsession already provides something similar. You can have a look at the documentation of lxsession (finally I had some time to write it ...) : http://wiki.lxde.org/en/LXSession
Let me know if you have something else in mind, to see if it's in the roadmap of lxsession. No need to write 2 applications which do the same things. I like the idea to have a central place for integration, but one element I liked in LXDE was the possibility to replace any components to chose the one I prefer. IMO, having this central place should not remove this possibility (even LXDE could work without lxsession).
