Nah, I assume it won't be necessary. To the extent it is possible to
pass Win32 HANDLES from one process to another, it uses a totally
different mechanism: The HANDLE is "duplicated" already in the source
process and one gets the value it can be used as in the target
process, thus it can be passed as just a normal 32 (or 64) -bit
integer, no magic required.

And most likely, whatever application or library that would want to
pass Unix fds over dbus is totally Unix-specific otherwise too.
