If you read some of the Linux mailing lists you'll find that dbus
has big problems.
Enough junk is fed through it that someone wanted to put it into the kernel.
The kernel guys then said - no, that'll use potentially infinite amounts
of kernel memory.
Apparantly it is a bit like trying to implement a reliable multicast
service when some of the readers aren't processing the input stream!
