More to the point "and so do POSIX message queues". They are also a
standard, a cross OS feature and relatively cleanly implemented in
kernel, ditto some classes of socket behaviour are similar and SYS5 IPC
(of which we shall not speak further I hope 8) ). I'm not saying that
they solve the problem but they might avoid some of the complexities.

Filtering is generalizable in Linux with a few lines of code, so rather
than hardcoding dbus semantics EBPF can express pretty much any
uni/multi/broadcast filtering policy rule for dbus or anything else.

I agree entirely with Havoc that the ease of use wants to be preserved
and semantics at the top of the dbus library shoudn't change. Dbus does
have the problem of being too easy to use badly, but that's hard to fix
technically 8)
