DESCRIPTION

To create a XUL-Node application, subclass from this class and provide one template method: start(). It will be called when the application is started.

You can get a callback for running the application by calling the class method get_constructor(), which returns a CODE ref that can be run to start the application. This is how the session starts applications.
