dbus_bus_* is just convenience API - for purposes of fooling with this, 
you can just dbus_connection_open() then dbus_bus_register(). The docs 
on dbus_bus_* go into more detail.

If people get it figured out how this should work then we can look into 
what convenience API should go in dbus itself vs. other libs, etc.
