What about asking CK to spawn a new session instead of doing it
directly? In case ENV is not set, just ask CK (still would allow
system session daemons to poll local buses from CK and do stuff like
push notifications to local user session services). Would also remove
the need to push more and more stuff into Xinit (same applies to ssh-
and gpg-agent and really any global agents that refuse to use dbus).
