Would it be a bad idea to modify _dbus_lookup_launchd_socket() so it uses getenv() to check if DBUS_STARTER_BUS_TYPE is set to system and if so return the value of DBUS_STARTER_ADDRESS ? Alternatively this could be done in the LAUNCHD specific code in _dbus_lookup_session_address().

Do privileged service helpers on Linux end up calling _dbus_lookup_session_address() ?
