Excellent! Please use D-Bus, that should be the easiest and is nicely
supported in Vala. I would suggest a private D-Bus, not going on
system/user/session Bus. (A small example is at https://gitlab.gnome.or
g/GNOME/glib/blob/master/gio/tests/gdbus-example-peer.c ) but session
Bus should work as well.

The OpenCV 3.4 I use in the flatpak is still looking for GTK2, so
there's always potential that someone will enable that combination :-/
