There is a hack right now which is to set the max received messages size
limit to a low number; see the top of 
_dbus_transport_get_dispatch_status() to understand why.

This shows what you'd do to implement dbus_connection_set_suspended() -
you'd just have a flag and start returning DISPATCH_COMPLETE if the flag
is set.

I think setup_with_g_main() potentially adds multiple GSource so that
might not be quite right.
