For some reason, I was thinking "piper" started the DL directly.

Yeah, I suppose if "piper" is just a UI launcher, then we can have it work as
you suggest: "piper" starts the default UI, unless "piper --ui=<UI>" is ran. 
The UI then starts the DL and creates a new session, or joins an existing
session if the DL is already running.
