But again, the documentation of
dbus_connection_get_socket/dbus_connection_get_unix_fd says "DO NOT
read or write to the file descriptor, or try to select() on it; use
DBusWatch for main loop integration."  What you want to do is actually
a kind of "main loop integration", though it looks a bit different
from those in typical GUI toolkits.

Actually, I'm not sure how the above caveat is serious/critical.
Maybe you can ask at some D-Bus list.

Perhaps you are looking at the code of the default (or sample)
implementation of the "main loop integration"?
