As I said on #dbus: if you must stick to dbus-glib, you can use
dbus_connection_register_fallback (part of libdbus, but dbus-glib connections
are implemented via libdbus connections, so you can mix the two if you're
careful). dbus-glib does not have a higher-level API for this.

Use dbus_g_connection_get_connection() to get the lower-level DBusConnection
out of the DBusGConnection.

(For the record, GDBus has g_dbus_connection_register_subtree which is
basically the same thing as dbus_connection_register_fallback.)
