Xpra: Ticket #472: use the ubuntu launcher API to populate the correct icon

With unity, the icon shown in the "dock" area is not the one we specify for the tray icon, but it should probably be.

I thought it should be relatively easy to query these menus via dbus, there is an "appmenu registrar" service after all and the interface looks sane, but querying it the path always comes up as "/". Instead, it looks like we need to look for _UNITY_OBJECT_PATH,

And whilst we're dealing with this, it might make sense to forward appindicators: How does one find out which application is associated with an indicator icon?.

Not for this release.

Hopefully Ubuntu will completely drop Unity and its APIs then we can focus on just one (gnome's): #476.
