Sounds like a reasonable approach for now, better than nothing. Rather 
than adding activation-specific stuff to 
_dbus_babysitter_set_child_exit_error() I would probably add 
_dbus_babysitter_get_child_exit_status() and then process the status in 
activation.c. (Or something like that.)

You'll need a header with your status<->error mapping to share between 
the activation helper and activation.c.
