Don't get me wrong, I'm not fully happy with current behavior either.
But I think just encouraging tons of DBusConnection is a poor solution,
we should be able to do better by fully understanding the problem and
either fixing issues that keep us from sharing one message queue between
multiple code modules, or introducing multiple message queues without
the overhead of tons of file descriptors. Someone needs to really think
this one through and write it down.
