To be clear: I don't like the front-end API.
To fix the front-end API we need to find out what the use-cases are that we're
trying to solve. So far, I've only heard one: preventing an application from
quitting while it has out-of-process windows open.
Are there more?
If there are not, then we can create an API for that one use-case.
