help gnome users find a way to get statusicon back

Follow up for #406.

If we find that the topicons / appindicator extension is not installed, show a warning dialog and offer to install the package (by calling packagekit? only if we know the package name?)
Have an option to not show the dialog again (and save to .local/share/xpra/conf.d/80_gnomeshell_warning.conf?).

If the extension is installed but not enabled, offer to enable it:

Once all of this has been done, offer to restart gnome shell

Too hard to make this work reliably on all platforms (even just RPM platforms), so WONTFIX.

A "better" solution would be #476, see ticket:2161#comment:3
