I think this is even documented somewhere: libdbus is not supposed to be used 
directly but rather through some binding.

As far as I understand a bit like XCB and toolkits. nobody is supposed to use 
pure XCB for application programming but use them through toolkits or simple 
wrappers like xlib/XCB

Summing it up there is a need for plain-C bindings, similar to the plain-C++ 
bindings someone else wrote about a couple of weeks ago.
