If you profile DBus, remember to turn off asserts when building it
(--disable-asserts).  They are heavily used to verify that DBus isn't
doing anything stupid, but they have a serious impact on performance:
60% of a system wide profile was DBus asserting!

If it were to be in a CVS branch I'd honestly prefer it to be in
subversion, it's a lot easier to track long-lived branches there.  The
majority of the work I've done is in separate directories (such as
libebook-dbus) and is designed so that it can be merged into upstream
trunk without breaking anything.  The only problem is how to handle
includes in the source directories, which is part of the reason I
started this thread.  I'm willing to do what I can to get this into
upstream CVS as a compile-time option in the standard tarballs, mainly
so that I don't have to continually do code merges... :)
