awesome!! :)
Yes, I'm working on that ! I'm able to call remote methode, remote methodes
with arguments and very soon remote methodes that return some values ..
There is just connection to remote signals and build in security missing ...

 I didn't know about this project before, but I think they are different.
What I want to do I to propose a simple access to the remote bus with build
in encryption and interface filter. I don't want to share an entire bus ..
Shs approch is less hacking but could be harder to get it working. My
project will be : Launch a daemon on the pc with a file with exported
methode and a password as argument (or setted via dbus), launch a daemon
with a password as argument (or setted via dbus) on the phone (or what ever
you want)
and access the remote bus via a single methode, you'll know that you are
calling a methode on a remote machine ...
I just want it to be simple, to use and to implement

I know that dbus is able directly to be used on network but that's not easy
to get it working, that's not documented and that's not secure ...

You can use the keyboard that come with the last release of qalee and my
daemons for it ;) (the keyboard is based on dbus and is divided on two part
(see svn, documentation soon))

To join a project, you have to know about it ;) But I think that those
differents approch can coexist, they are different to use.
If you don't like mine, I don't care, you are not obliged to use it, for me
and other peoples it's utile as it is. That's free software :)
( For example I can say the same about Enlightenment ... I don't like it,
their were kde, gnome, ... why people are developing for it instead of
developing for other DE ? But I don't care, you have the choice to use what
you want and develop for what you want ... )
