I think that's fine.

I don't see a problem. How does the following sound? We retain the
"--enable-system-bus" switch, but it just alters the default value of
a GConf key:

  /apps/geoclue/config/systemwide: boolean

which is then consulted internally and externally to determine which
bus should be used.
