While adding network libraries to GLib/GNetwork, I feel that
integrated, high-level service discovery and publishing objects, ala
GServiceDiscovery and $OBJECTNOTYETWRITTEN are good candidates for
the stack.

While they are currently dependant on Avahi, the idea is to prevent
them from unnessecarily exposing Avahi implementation details so
that they could be use opaquely with other mDNS/DNS-SD
implementations (eg. Apple's).
