"int timeout_milliseconds" for consistency with other stuff and to allow

It's not quite a simple bool, see get_dispatch_status(). Also,
read_write_dispatch() returns a bool with another meaning.

I think the right patch is probably:
- make the body of read_write_dispatch() into a private function
that takes a "dbus_bool_t dispatch" argument
- wrap it in two public functions, one that calls it with TRUE
and another that calls with with FALSE
i.e. this is exactly like read_write_dispatch except it never
