The World Is Not A Linux Box(tm). You're suffering from this shortsighted 
view of the world, so I will remind you gently that GNUstep needs to run 
properly under many non-Linux environments. D-BUS' ultimate goal /is/ to 
be cross-platform. It also integrates with SELinux, so once again your 
idea is in no way unique, and I urge you to not to do such a perposterous 
thing. D-BUS has no dependencies. You are mistaken. Read the website at 
http://www.freedesktop.org/Software/dbus where it states this in a 
sentence in no uncertain terms.
