But it doesn't work, mainly for two reasons:
- missing socket credentials, which prevents user applications to
  connect to the system bus (see the socket credentials and scm creds
  pages on the "open issues" wiki page)
- select() which behaves wrongly in very short timeouts (see eg [1]);
  capping the timeout (when specified) to at least 1ms is usually enough

Note both these two problems also prevent gamin to work, and the 
select() issue also may affect other software.
