I think the most inobtrusive way to do this is to overload 
dbus_connection_add_filter into dbus_connection_add_filter2 that takes 
two functions as parameters. The second one would be called when the lock 
has been released.

Yes. I could implement all my parsing in terms of ObjectPathVTable if 
that's what it would take, though.
