The two main things I can think of are handling out-of-memory conditions
and not being tied to a specific main loop.  Otherwise, why did you
write those routines for dbus instead of just using glib?  I suspect
many of the same reasons apply.

I don't think they're really *that* generally useful, but there are a
lot of similar problems being solved between dbus and hal (a system
daemon, a desktop-agnostic library).
