The only problem is that *desktop* users use *desktop* apps, which
never have a controlling tty.

This is a *nerd* config not helping any regular desktop user. You guys
are optimizing the system for people who build kernels and watch
movies at the same time, not for desktop users. Hooking into TTYs
works for almost nobody sane out there. :)

It's all fine, no comment on the patch, it's a nice hack. But please
stop talking about the *desktop* here, it has almost nothing to do
with it.
