If that works then I don't see any reason for not patching in a QEMU
environment.  It involves patching run-with-tmp-session-bus.conf to
change the <listen></listen> tag to point to tcp socket instead of a
unix one. I've never used a tcp socket with dbus so I am not sure of the
format.  Matt, can you post an example?  Thanks.
