Xpra: Ticket #1375: User should be notified when a file is uploaded from the server

When a file is uploaded from the server to the client application, there is only a notification in the client logs. This is not sufficient and could lead to a security issue in case of the server is compromised. The client host could be flooded silently.

The user should be: 1/ Asked to accept the upload 2/ Notified through system-tray or popup

Thanks and regards,

Client-side GUI for accepting "print", "file-transfers" or "open file" requests has been added in r17740. The new default for "file-transfers" and "open-files" options is "auto", which will prompt GUI users.

This should be enough for this release.

Still TODO / possible improvements:
