I'm afraid Java dbus doesn't support passing FDs over dbus - it's not
immediately obvious what Java would do with it afterwards. I guess adding
another JNI wrapper as we do with the dbus socket would work, but I've not done
the work for that.

On a related note, if someone wants to join or take over the dbus-java
maintenance I would be happy, I'm not finding very much time to work on it
these days.
