You've actually touched another issue I see here, and that is -- the code
is complex like crazy.

I've spent big part of past two days trying to get my head around it, but
I am still far away from getting at least the 1000 miles overview of how
exactly the message passing is designed.

I understand that the primary reason for this complexity is probably the
dbus protocol specification itself.

But the problem really is that I don't think you've received even a single
Reviewed-by: from someone who hasn't been directly involved in developing
the code, right?

For something that's potentially such a core mechanism as a completely
new, massively-adopted IPC, this does send a warning singal.
