Add client option to re-establish connection

A wish list item for me...

I frequently use xpra over a VPN connection. Inevitably, the VPN connection goes down at some point. When that happens, I have to disconnect xpra and then start it again after re-establishing the VPN link.

I'd love it if there was an option off the status tray icon to re-establish the xpra connection.

Two options I can think of:

  • it execs itself using the command line found in sys.argv
    • easier / should be simple to do
  • we pass the socket factory to the client class so it can re-create it
    • more difficult / potentially more bugs, but also a better approach..
