from my perspective I am ready to do a release, but I would actually  
prefer to host it on since its only dependencies are  
libdbus and libglib. So the not having a release issue can be solved  
quite quickly.

I also like to get an idea what other people think about the API. The  
design was driven by what I have done in the past and what seemed to  
be an easy way of doing things without bothering developers with too  
much D-Bus low-level details.
