I see your point. Well, let's do it another way.

People who want to suppress D-Bus autolaunch are not very familiar with
D-Bus, in general. We shall give them some help.

D-Bus people know the problem of hanging autolaunched D-Bus sessions
over ssh connections, see the discussion in
<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32509>. AFAICS, there is
no fix integrated yet into the D-Bus sources.

Until there is a solution on D-Bus side, we might add a configure option
--without-dbus-autolaunch. This would have the same effect as
"--without-dbus --without-gconf --without-gsettings" for now, maybe we
need to add other libraries later.
