>> The libgdbus currently offers you the following things:
>> * Easy integration with the GLib mainloop
>> * Easy creation of objects and interfaces
>> * Support for the D-Bus properties
>> * Automatic introspection support
>> * Simpler API for NameOwnerChanged watches
> This looks very clean and nice. Some of the APIs look similar to
> Havoc's hippo-dbus-helper.
thanks. I never looked in detail into the hippo-dbus-helper, but I
knew that Havoc and BlueZ were doing something similar since quite

It is not a binding. It is a helper library to ease the use of D-Bus
low-level functionality. You still need a lot of native D-Bus low-
level calls to use it while with dbus-glib you don't have use D-Bus
low-level at all.

Not in that detail. I am planning to add some D-Bus dict helpers for
client and server usage, but for sure, client extensions are possible.
