D-Bus daemon configuration file

Hello Simon,

Thank you very much for the answer.
Of course I should mention I need it for LINUX :)

The --address seems to be a not documented command line parameter (I 
couldn't find it in dbus-daemon manual).
I suppose it will override the <listen> token which in that case can 
contain any address. Is this correct?
