This looks very clean and nice.  Some of the APIs look similar to
Havoc's hippo-dbus-helper.

I think all the stakeholders in dbus-glib agree it is fairly
fundamentally broken from an API standpoint and doesn't have much of a
future.  Any objections to elevating libgbus to more "official" status
by having it in the bindings page?

Also, have you taken a look at hippo-dbus-helper?  It might make sense
to pull it in as a corresponding GLib-friendly client API.
