Bug Description

Whenever the OAuth flow needs to be started on behalf of an application, we emit a notification which, if clicked, will initiate the OAuth flos in a separate window.
However, if the client application has its own visible window, the authentication window could (and should, according to design) be happening as a prompt session on top of the application.

In order to do so, we need signond to pass the PID of the client application, and online-accounts-ui to create a prompt session for it.
