I know it is possible for a server to get a dbus client ident (ex.
":1.1").  My question is, could anybody provide a sample method which
shows how i use this (or any other args) to derive the uid/username
privilege of the client, and the client programs name?
ex.  If the server could print out  
"Called from :1.1.  Run by 'root'.  Client name ''."

NOTE:  This is my private email address.  Use it for PERSONAL email only.  Do not give it to any social, news, ecard, or ANY other websites.  Every time you do this, i will get more spam.
