There's nothing wrong with having some convenience candy in libdbus
directly: in the ideal world everybody would use bindings, but in the real
world bindings are typically 'affiliated' with some camp or language and
some projects would want to avoid that, eg it does not make much sense
for Wine to depend on glib simply because the raw DBUS API is too much of
a hassle to work with, so we'd just have to suck it up.
