I would rather not have dbus-launch standardised in its current form -
it has some rather questionable bits of design.

Reviews would be extremely welcome on:



I think dbus-daemon --print-address (used behind the scenes by
dbus-launch, and by the new dbus-run-session introduced in #39196) is a
more appropriate way to start new private buses, to be honest. The
automatic aspects of dbus-launch are good for the X11-linked session
bus, but are overkill for a group of cooperating processes wanting a
private pseudo-session.
