Cool! I am glad to see someone taking this back up. I think it's
possible the remaining patches are quite small and could be integrated
relatively quickly...

One of the main discussion points in the past was avoiding "unix
emulation" - here are some posts I dug out of google, though none of
them explains it very succintly hopefully you get the idea:


Some mention of the windows transport specifically:

I think it's useful to start from the dbus-specification.xml document
and explain the Windows transport and authentication in there in a way
that makes sense on Windows, as if the spec had been written with a
Windows transport from the start. And then implement same in the code.
Rather than starting from the Unix code, and getting it to build on
