Hmm, I just answered no didn't I.
Well, the exact answer is that it depends on what you'll do with it.
In fact, afaik, it does for the notification stuff. But I'm at this
moment still studying and getting myself understanding the overall
architecture of DBUS.
So I suggest forwarding your question to the dbus mailinglists :-)
The architectural idea of a DConf without daemon wont depend on D-BUS.
The current idea is to make the interface with the system dat is now
being drawn as the daemon a pluggable one.
Therefore it will be possible to plug a new implementation of that
interface. This implementation might simply omit the functionality that
can't be implemented within the technological possibilities of the
dependencies of your plugin.
Like in case you don't want your system to support notification of
Please do note that all this is in very early stages of design. We have
a good overview of what we want. We know how to do it. We are planning
to do a meeting with a few experienced and highly interested developers
(but please keep it a little bit silent as we don't want "over my dead
body" - people visiting our meeting).
ps. but IMPORTANT! I don't have any time estimations. I'm not promising
that this project will ever succeed. I'm not promising it will ever be
more than a prototype or a concept.
