Random tiny thing I noticed in the spec,

> In higher level tools, the user visible representation of a connection is
> defined by the D-Bus protocol specification as ":1.<id>".

I think just :<id> would be OK. I'm not really sure why the current
daemon uses :<32bit>.<32bit> instead of :<64bit> even though I
probably did that.
My reading of the dbus spec is that the important thing is to start
with ":" so that unique names are in their own namespace.
