Hehe, coming from a strong background in CORBA on one hand, but pure
bare-metal unix domain socket IPC on the other hand, I have to admit
that while dbus lacks a lot, it
 * (pretty much) ends the horror of proprietary IPC protocols, thus
 * enabling interconnecting components, hence
 * bringing interoperability.
 * It also comes with an interactive scripting console (read: Python).
And that's what I'm all glad for.

But now we went really off topic considering the original thread :)
