that is exactly how it works and we can't use signal. Even directed
signal are not working since the method call into the agent has to
return the result or an error.
What problem do you guys actually have with this? The agent inside
bluez-gnome is verifying that the method comes from the daemon it
registers its agent with and thus there is not even a security issue
here with trying to send arbitrary method calls to the UI.
