What if we move the low-level stuff to a 'daemon' exposing the
services through dbus? AFAIK there isn't too much data transfer
between the GUI and the sync services.

John and I have discussed this possibility a number of times in the past, and I think that now the mvc branch is starting to come into shape these sorts of things will be possible. Whether it is a good idea or not im still not sure.

Either way I am happy to get it working in SVN head (i.e. the ugly way) and look at how to do a cleaner implementation in the mvc branch.
