Well those 20K don't do much harm being in memory :) Many mcs settings 
which people very seldom use are in memory.
And the dbus solutions advantage besides speed, at least the reason 
Benedikt proposed it would be choice between various UIs depending on 
which app provides the service.

And while xfrun is not that commonly used when it is used it is good to 
be as fast as possible that's where hot in hot-keys comes from ;) So 
it's not about how often it is used.

As for firing up a terminal that takes more actually, whether you fire 
it up and run the command, or switch to it using alt-tabs.
