I will wait before I start with my own implementation to check if
somebody starts an implementation based on D-BUS or defines a standard
that uses the protocols designed for and by X.

Also note that I want to create this daemon/framework as platform
independent as possible. This means that Ms. Windows is also a canditate
on the list of supported platforms.

Perhaps somebody should implement something like this in a clean way.
This means that it might be a issue for before anybody
even starts with that implementation.
