There was no "presentation" at all, we talked with Ryan without any
specific agenda, most of the others left the room after 20 minutes to
go for food. The focus was the payload layout when passing the kernel
regarding GVariant; nothing too D-Bus specific.

There is nothing to discuss at the moment. It's an experimental
lowest-level kernel experiment, we ourselves have no idea where we
will end up with.

It has almost nothing to do with "D-Bus" at this moment, it is more
about passing of resources form one linux process to the other, and
that is almost entirely only kernel work and nothing else.

It can all be discussed to no end when we are ready and confident
things can work out;before that, people can look at stuff, it's all
public, but not expect anything from us we don't even know ourselves.
