Oh, in case someone cut-and-pastes from the archives, I want to
underline where you said this is a private connection. Doing this on a
normal (shared) bus connection from dbus_bus_get() would be pretty scary
since all sorts of stuff could get dispatched; and if this code weren't
in the main thread, the dispatching would be in the wrong thread.
Doing the above minus the _dispatch() part would be just fine on a
shared connection though, even from another thread.
