It's not that simple. D-Bus could also be used by Emacs offering
services to other applications.

Furthermore, the D-Bus autolaunch feature is active only when there is a
connection to X11 (ie $DISPLAY is set). That's not the case for many

But I confirm, that we must care about (too much) dependencies on D-Bus.
