If so, then what you can do is considerably restricted. There's a reason
why most GUI frameworks, and several of the more successful D-Bus bindings
(e.g. QtDBus and GDBus), mandate the use of a particular main loop, either
in your main thread or in a worker thread.

This isn't particularly efficient (run dbus-monitor and see how many method
calls it'll make!), but is about as good as you're going to get without some
sort of main loop.
