I would be happy to receive a patch: please open a bug on
bugs.freedesktop.org under dbus/core.

Depending how large and complicated the patch is, and how likely to
cause regressions it appears to be, I might only be willing to apply it
to master (dbus 1.7), or I might also be willing to apply it to the
current stable branch, dbus 1.6. I am unlikely to apply it to the 1.4
old-stable branch, which is only supported for security fixes.

Please note that the current 1.4 release is 1.4.24. You should only use
1.4.16 if your distribution provides backported security fixes.
