Only the original 4-clause BSD license is incompatible with the GPL because
of the advertising clause (which requires you to advertise).

Not that I have any code in dbus, but the point about the 2-clause BSD
license is good.  No need for triple-licensing.  Just one simple license,
which is compatible with almost every license.
