Specifically this is
When I talked to Lennart about this a couple of weeks back his
response was "just use pipelining!". While it's true this will "solve"
the problem, I don't think it's useful as it will complicate
implementations (which are security sensitive code already) and make
debugging slightly harder.
Honestly, I don't care too much about this and I don't have time to
duel it out with Lennart - so whatever you guys end up with is fine
with me and I'll just implement it in GDBus when it's in the spec
(currently GDBus supports NEGOTIATE_UNIX_FD/AGREE_UNIX_FD. It's not a
biggie to add NEGOTIATE_TYPE_MAYBE/AGREE_TYPE_MAYBE to this).
