As you wish.
Maybe I can resend the patch around 2013 then.

Oh, sorry, I though that was obvious to a Qt developer.
The benefit is dropping libx11 dependency and usage (old bad ugly code,
you may know) and usage of asynchronous request/reply sequences. In the
case of D-Bus, mainly in the atom requests. Which can be considered as
ridiculously small, I admit.
But if you're not aware, there's a recent trend which is to drop libx11
in favor of libxcb. Several Xorg apps have already been ported, and
libx11 is using libxcb as a transport by default for a long time.
New X.org katamari will therefore brings XCB in a mandatory way, whereas
it was previously optional.
I hope that's enough for you. But please, next time, try to dig a bit
