The latter one is not an option for Emacs. I came to the problem because
of at-spi2. GTK based applications are integrated in at-spi2 with their
main menus via gdbus. Adding our internal at-spi2 logic via another
session bus connection is a nightmare. And we would loose this default
at-spi2 integration, if we would use a glib w/o gdbus.

For other use cases, there doesn't seem to be a big problem having two
independent session bus connections in parallel. AFAIK.
