system tray menu needs a command-launcher

I normally start the xpra server with "--start-child=xterm", then connect to it, and in the xterm, I run the commands I need, such as "thunderbird".
However, if I inadvertently close the xterminal on the display side, then there is no way to run further commands. Both sides are still running Xpra, but it's now necessary to shut them both down and re-start from scratch. (It's no good to SSH in, set $DISPLAY, and then launch another xterm, because then if the connection temporarily dies, all the programs get terminated).
I think it would be really useful if the system-tray menu on the client included at least one of the following:
- A menu item to start another xterm (fall back automatically to rxvt,konsole,or whatever is installed)
- A quick CLI to run an arbitrary command (like Alt-F2).
- A graphical launcher similar to the KDE/Gnome/... start menu.
Thanks for your consideration, and for a really useful tool.
