As others have mentioned, we're really not in the mood for more library
dependencies right now. However, some people have asked for platform
features that would require D-bus support. I don't know much about the
D-bus protocol, but if a small D-bus client is just opening a unix domain
socket and writing a message to it then we could possibly support it
using a standalone implementation, like we just did for systemd.
