Just to be clear here -- this doesn't actually open any windows or
display anything.  It simply asks the gcr to reserve the right to make a
system prompt:


It should fail properly if:

 * there is nothing providing the gcr service on the current d-bus
   session, or

 * there is something which provides gcr, but it knows it is unable to
   make a system prompt.

let me know if you have any questions,
