I started dbuscpp and then dbus-glibmm. I did not have time to  continue
them, or even get as far as working examples, though that was partly
because of a lack of dbus examples at the time.


dbus-cpp was meant to be a generic C++ API, without a dependency on
glibmm to Qt, to make everyone happy.

dbusmm is a glibmm/gtkmm-style wrapper of the dbus-glib API. I started
it because I didn't know how to allow both glibmm and Qt programs to use
their mainloop with dbus-cpp. I lacked some kind of generic mainloop

Until I actually need to use dbus in one of my programs, this will
remain a low priority for me. I would very much like someone else to do
the work.
