As I said I don't plan to wrap QtDBus. One of the reasons was that QtDBus
seems very C++-centric (unlike the rest of the Qt API) and a Python wrapper
would have to do some things in a slightly different way. (Put another way,
templates are evil.) Unlike Richard I have the luxury of a maturing and
actively developed alternative.
