Dear all,

Hi, I am looking for a solution for blocking dbus send to special
We don't want any message to be sent to the destination by some of
runtime configuration.

We needs this on:
A process has a dbus connection. And this process was gone to
unreasonable state by any reason. And the other system daemon or
itself(who the owner of the connection) notify to dbus daemon about this
connection is not reachable now. So any message should be dropped. Then
dbus daemon will drop any messages to the connection.

Does dbus already have this functionality? or similar?
