I'd rather do it the same way we have gio-unix-2.0. E.g.

 - provide a gio-libdbus1-2.0.pc file
 - put headers in /usr/include/dbus-1.0/gio-libdbus1-2.0/gio/*

with GIO_LIBDBUS1_USE_UNSTABLE_API guards so we have an upgrade path to
libdbus-2.0 or something else.

I also think we should be a bit more ambitious than just providing
mainloop integration. Things like

is really hard to get right with libdbus. In fact, most people get it

I guess I should just finish the gdbus-standalone stuff and then we can
either put it into libgio (for 2.30) or I can release it under another
prefix and get on with my life...
