I created a launcher script that does exactly what we said (create a
Dbus server that can start individual tichy applications).
I pushed it in tichy git repos [0]

It only works with gtk backend so far (cause I still need to remove
quite a few gobject dependencies in tichy's code)

To try it, run the script, from the test directory :

It should start a new DBus service at org.tichy with an object
called /Launcher implementing the org.tichy.Launcher interface, that has
2 methods : Launch(s) and Quit()

You can then send a DBus request to start any applications by name :
e.g, to start the contact application using dbus-send :

dbus-send --session --dest='org.tichy' /Launcher org.tichy.Launcher.Launch string:Contacts
