Right now, it can't.

The proposed solution would work on Unix/X11 only and would be dependent 
on the X server being active.

I have no idea how a similar solution would be on Windows. If it has 
auto-startable services, it's a possibility. The great problem is finding 
out the address of the bus server: if it isn't well-known (as is the case 
of the Unix session daemon), it would be a problem.
