Om2009 is using paroli and frameworkd, both of which are written in python, 
and communicate using dbus, so you shouldn't have any problems with it. I 
don't know anything about the org.openmoko.Dialer dbus interface you are 
using, but I guess it is now replaced by frameworkd.

I don't think I ever tried Om2008.12, but afaik it didn't make much use of 
dbus or python. I guess you would have had to install extra packages to get 
them working, but it looks like you are missing a python package, and the dbus 
session bus isn't started despite your use of dbus-launch.
