It's like the normal bus-based connections, except that you won't be 
calling dbus_bus_get.

You'll instead set up one end to listen for a connection using DBusServer 
and the other will initiate the connection using dbus_connection_open.

Since there is no bus involved, that's all it takes. Note that messages 
exchanged won't have sender or destination, since there's only one peer 
to send messages to.
