Hmm... that's a difficult question.
I initially proposed that we enforce a global mainloop library that
toolkits have to use.
However, this will not make bindings to toolkits that are "more closed"
like Java (which is no longer using libdbus-1, but was at a point) use
such a mainloop.
So we're at an impasse.
