As involved in E stack, I should comment this leats to major PitA:
either you need to keep code to talk to different versions of DK-[dp]
(== bloat) or to restrict your libraries to a limited set of versions of
DK-[dp] (== useless).

So D-Bus DK-[dp] protocol is considered internal? D-Bus becomes just a
mechanism for privilege separation and interaction with PolicyKit, and
not a, uhm, service bus.
