Re: D-BUS and Xforwarding.

The only real question here is how to avoid the Xlib dependency for libdbus, there are various hacks one could employ.

btw, my original plan for this involved writing a small xlib replacement that also fixed the "mandatory exit on display disconnect" problem, the hard part of this is replicating DISPLAY parsing and authentication, the protocol reimplementation is trivial since you only need to care about a couple types of message, and well X protocol isn't complex - but I admit this plan is kind of crazy.

Some type of proxy daemon is perhaps a better idea, or just dlopen since I think latest xlib doesn't have the forced-exit-on-disconnect.
