Ok. It may be has a documentation, i haven't look. But i want to write system
daemon and i don't need UI bindings (QT). Also in my opinion interpreted
languages (Perl, python) isn't good instrument for such application. Java is
too heavy for this.
I repeat that this all is only my opinion and i don't want futher discussion
about it but i looked for glib or raw API documentation.

Dbus-glib has only function/data type reference. It has no any other
description as well as official examples. It was my dissapointment.

But i don't know. Because i haven't any interface to sleep/poll-like functions.
