I'm starting from a position of ignorance, but perhaps resolve that by
explaining in simple terms both what dbus would give me and why I might not
want it.  The reality is that if it's off by default, most users won't be aware
of it to turn it on.  However, if it's on by default, presumably only users who
already knew about it would want to turn it off.
