For the records, years ago I had ported Emacs' dbusbind.c to SXEmacs,
using their ffi interface. It was almost running; I forgot why it wasn't
finished and included in SXEmacs. A corner-case problem with events maybe.

Once Emacs' dynamic modules are usable, I plan to write a scuccessor of
dbusbind.c for kdbus as dynamic module.

The D-Bus machinery is based on (Lisp level) callbacks.

Best regards, Michael.
