I'm on F21 here. I can't tell if doing this is easy or hard or if it
will break anything else for me or the other 5 or 6 people that will
have to do the same thing on their systems. If F22 did this by default
I'd upgrade yesterday...

I'm still hoping we can get kdbus (and or user space improvements in
dbus performance...)
