I haven't really given too much thought to how it could be implemented
but I had hoped it would be possible to use the .NET platform's own
event loop by watching files.

But, yes, I agree, it's probably not worth bothering about it too much
unless a need arises. P/Invoke uses late binding anyway so the call into
the dbus-glib library can sit there without causing a problem to someone
who doesn't have dbus-glib as long as it doesn't get invoked.
