The model we have in telepathy-spec at the moment is that each Client name
(which can be like "Empathy" or "Empathy._1._42" or "Empathy._1._42.Window3")
has a fixed set of filters for its entire lifetime. If you want to change your
filters, drop and re-add a Client name (but you can't usefully do that anyway
if your filters are hard-coded in a .client file - activatable clients should
have their normal set of filters in their .client file, then add additional
transient names if necessary in order to widen the filters while running).

That's a point - we need a way to release the bus name...
