The file descriptor change was extremely minor compared to the rest. There was 
never any discussion of the wire protocol after the agreement that adding file-
descriptor passing was a good thing.

The wire protocol is very stable and that's what matters. If you want to have 
a discussion, just go ahead.

The user-level API, especially that exposed by libdbus-1 is irrelevant for 
your discussion.
