But can't a dbus library handle this for the apps? Like implementing TCP on
top of UDP. I really doubt the entire dbus protocol needs to be pushed into
the kernel.

I'm going to try to spend some time reading about dbus and playing with the
code (thanks for the links BTW!). Then I can see if I can come up with
something too. Or at least be able to ask the right questions.
