Right, when I was profiling stuff my baseline was just a pair of
processes that did read() and write() on "char buf" or something,
blocking in each direction. i.e. attempting to profile purely the cost
of the read and write.
iirc ORBit was not dramatically slower than that raw socket case, so I
think dbus:orbit and dbus:sockets is about the same measure. But, it was
many years ago.
