Reading the gvariant and gbus source btw, this would be somewhat
misleading at the moment; gvariant's type system is a dbus superset,
and its serialization format is a proposed "dbus v2" format that may
or may not ever get used by dbus. (One of the main barriers being that
nobody afaik is working on adding feature negotiation or protocol v2
support to libdbus yet, so there would not be a bus daemon or a
least-common-denominator / plain-C / zero-dependencies library
supporting the v2 protocol.)
