I want to get an Release Candidate out today. I basically have to check
in the TODO items I had. Thiago's launching patch is still outstanding
so I will make it a blocker for the final release.
There are still two more items on the TODO list which need looking at.
The first is the break loader of which I have a half of a patch for but
have to figure out how to create a message in the string format the
break loader expects.
The second is the add a new return code from dbus_connection_dispatch()
to avoid deadlock issues. We pretty much punted this but left it on the
TODO just in case someone wanted to address it. I personally don't
think it is worth holding up 1.0. A future fix could be setting a flag
that says a binding can handle IN_PROGRESS. If this flag is set
dispatch will be able to deffer a dispatch is one is already in progress
(i.e. recursive dispatch). In other words this can be fixed post 1.0.
