What do you guys think about having DBus just try every activation
request through init first?  In other words, we send a message like:


and init replies "yes", "no", "error".   Actually even better, init
just always handles launching a task like this, and if there isn't a
corresponding native item (upstart job, unit file, whatever), init
just make one up.

It's not functionally different from dbus launching it really.
