Whine whine whine. ;-) I just did this for you, it took a couple hours.

I did not quite finish; dbus_transport_open needs a similar change to 
dbus_server_listen, will need to add DBusTransportOpenResult like 
DBusServerListenResult, and also _dbus_transport_open_platform_specific 
living in dbus-transport-unix.c.

_dbus_server_set_bad_address should probably become 
_dbus_address_set_bad() and shared between the server and transport code.

This remaining change should take about 1/2 hour but is needed for
