Hi Thiago Macieira:

thank you for your so quick reply.

I think I understand the question.

And we think queued messages function is very useful and valueble.

Because it is more simple for developer : do not need write the .service

Also this function will not make bad the performance of dbus deamon,

for example after a certain time (30 seconds), deamon will delete the queued


Is it difficult to implement it?
