That's exactly what I meant.  Some applications communicate through
dbus, using peer-to-peer communications, without using a bus.

The Python binding allows for direct connections to be open like the
following (TCP in this example):

    import dbus;
    conn = dbus.connection.Connection("tcp:host=localhost,port=1234")

I think that calling `dbus_connection_open' with a dbus address would be
enough to support direct connections in the Emacs binding (but I might
be wrong).
