Definitely. That's something that could be useful not only for the debug vs. release case, but also for different
versions of KDE apps running in parallel. For example, I usually have a stable KDE-Windows build for my common apps,
then I have an enterprise4 branch build for Kontact, and I also keep a trunk build for testing and development.
Currently I have to kill all processes (including dbus-daemon) everytime I need to switch between those, which is a
PITA. Having the possibility to run multiple session buses in parallel would make this much easier, even if I have to do
some manual setup at build time.

Thanks by the way ;)
