If you have the time and motivation I'd go ahead rather than wait.
DBUS API as I hear isn't quite stable yet and this is the kind
of thing desktops need.   You could always go back and use the
DBUS API later if you're so inclined. 

I'd talk with Keith Packard on defining a standard or have it as
a TODO on Keith's branch of Xfree if you want to go the X route.

I don't think there is anything in DBUS that I could see that would 
prevent it from being ported to other systems.

I'm not sure I understand?
