As I understand, D-BUS was designed from the ground up to be usable as a
DCOP replacement, which is the low-level architecture used in KDE's
KParts component model.  So it should most definitely be usable as the
low-level transport in an out-of-process component model.  (Remember,
"component" can be an in-process thing, i.e. basically a shared object
loader, which then wouldn't need D-BUS for anything.)
