dbus questions [was Re: Merging gio into glib]


A few dbus integration questions from an application developer who is somewhat familiar with gtk internals and the win32 port.

* Would gtk be usable on posix-like platforms that do not have dbus installed and configured? Does OS X fall into this category?

* What happens when something is added on Linux that isn't easily implementable on win32, OS X, or another platform? One could imagine some sort of interface that allowed a capability to be implemented or not.

* Where does code that interfaces with dbus or native api's go? I think most native platform specific code in the gtk+ tarball is in gdk now; will gdk remain the primary place for such code?
