	Ho hum; I think we'll be living with D-BUS for a very long time; ORBit2
was deprecated by D-BUS oh, 6+ years ago, and is still in use by
accident on my desktop ;-) despite many people's best efforts.

	And using file-system semantics for everything is something the FUSE
mob like; after all, you can do anything by passing strings back and
forth right ? whether you want to do every single function call via the
file-system, is another matter. I don't believe it really bears
discussing on this list though :-)
