Ok, I'll look into this some more, but for now I have two questions...

This is the first time that I encounter this "introspect" thing in 
relation to DBus. Does this mean that DBus does have (or will have) the 
ability for auto-discovery of services/objects/interfaces/methods and 
signals? Or is this about something else?

(I have talked about this before and it is my soapbox subject somewhat, 
to be able to "discover" what actions are possible by just questioning 
the bus for all the info, just lke you can do with dcop)

Anyway, is there some info about what this should do? I found something 
in another message of yours 
(http://freedesktop.org/pipermail/dbus/2004-March/000839.html), but it 
isn't much to go by.

Ok and while you're being honest: are the ideas you just talked about 
only your own or is there some consensus that this should be more or 
less the way to go? (Being new I have no idea yet who are the great 
minds behind DBus, so I have no idea who makes the decisions around 
here, sorry :-)
