For the D-BUS protocol specification, this is what I have in TODO for
- Add a timestamp to the methods that need atomicity so that it can be
implemented in the service like how ACAP does it's STORE command and
IMAP does it's CONDSTORE one (suggested by Dave Cridland).
- A NOOP operation (suggested by Avery Pennarun)
- Make the INVALIDVALUEERROR optional for service implementations that
don't support any type validation. Cause of this a high level library
shouldn't trust data coming from the service and should check the type
validity since such service implementation allow any type on every
writable key (suggested by Avery Pennarun)
ps. If you have other suggestions like this, please let me know and/or
give me a diff file or ask me for an account (please use the new xhtml
file since that is the file format I started to use).
