Yeah, I have absolutely no objection with
dbus_connection_setup_with_g_main (can't really get around that if you
have to dispatch on mainloop). It was the rest I was talking about.

I'm not saying dbus-glib is inherently harder than the raw bindings -
perhaps the documentation just fails to make the point why it would be
easier ;-).
