Specific reasons were:
1. No reason for distributions to include oyranos by default as
there were no apps demanding it
2. Dependencies of oyranos are not already included by default
3. An over-complicated codebase with it's own object system
Other reasons exist.

I remember the author disliking dbus in public.

Yes, this is one thing we talked about.
