Just read that. A few points. D-BUS is engineered for security so I
don't really agree with that point. However linking in external
dependencies may be a good reason to not have libdbus added in this one
special case. This however is not a reason to create a level of
indirection for all applications. One can simply write a glue daemon to
monitor XScreenSaver's communication channel and propagate it to D-BUS.
Having all application go through this or even promoting this as the way
to send messages to the desktop, in my opinion would be wrong.
