So the "correct" solution is to basically ignore read_write_dispatch and
implement the exact same thing, but with an additional socket that's used
just to wake up the thread that's waiting for file descriptor activity?
This additional socket would just have a byte of arbitrary data shoved into
it whenever the dbus message queue has something added to it, so that the
waiting thread polls the queue, right? That seems terribly hackish to me.
Is calling poll ten times a second really that expensive? It seems like you
have a handful of instructions to check the message queue's state, and then
you go back to polling for another hundred ms. Would it even be possible to
detect that amount of CPU activity?
