I guess I don't see a good use case of Process A synchronously calls Process
B who in the middle of the call synchronously calls Process A.   To me that
seems like a programmer error, something wasn't designed right (where's the
layering?).   I'm really not focused on solving all synchronous blocking
problems because that seems generally impossible, just the case of a Process
wanting to use DBus to Synchronously call itself.
