One thing to keep in mind here is that for processing the .conf
directories, dbus will ignore any file not ending in .conf. So if
the installer/updater mechanism writes out a temporary file
.conf.xxxxx and then does a rename(), things should be fine.

I believe this is what we do currently. So...my conclusion here is
not to take the Debian patch.
