True that but don't forget the authentication code (EXTERNAL, etc.)! I
think it was the most challenging part to get right (and to test) when I
wrote GDBus. The ironic thing is that we don't really need any of it (and I
think kdbus does largely away with it) since 99% of the time we're using
Unix domain sockets + peer credentials...
