Started a discussion on emacs-devel.

I'm not surprised.

Possibly, but those seem like an easier nut to crack: AFAIU, each time
we need to watch for D-Bus events, we register a file descriptor for
that, and deregister it when we no longer need it, is that right?  If
so, we could easily make these descriptors watched only by the thread
that registered the watch, the infrastructure for that already exists.

By contrast, there's only one keyboard descriptor.
