I had the very same idea when this was discussed a long time ago in
Lazarus list.
Martin Friebe noted that every application would then depend on this
single-instance IPC code.
It was a valid point. There should not be such a dependency.

The right way is to use a drag-and-drop LCL component like the one
from Luiz Américo.
The question is should we replace his component with a better one
based on Ondrej's AdvancedIPC.
I think we should because SimpleIPC apparently has limitations.

Michael, an LCL component is as beginner friendly as your
SingeInstance property would be.
