Yes, clearly having glib-dbus in the stack today would help a lot;
however gvfs already has an internal (private) connection, we can
figure this out.  I think having an internal non-public API would not
be too hard.

If it'll help move things along here I think I can schedule some of my
time for this relatively soon, basically just move gvfs/gdbusutils.c
to glib/gio/gbus-private.c.

Assuming the design doesn't change, any API delta (as long as it's not
too egregious) is less interesting than the simple inertia effect of
having created a lot of patches for various projects, and patching
them again, even if it's almost a sed job.
