its a separate discussion, certainly. but i'd also note that i think its pretty misguided to seek to "unify" things there. DBus is not just an IPC API, its a system-level *concept* with lots of semantics. applications that use DBus (whether via gdbus or not) are not just out to "use whatever the OS provides" - they get a very specific set of semantics. if they really, really need this for their apps to function, DBus is available for most platforms.

put another way, gdbus is NOT a wrapper around "system IPC APIs". its a wrapper around DBus. its really entirely unrelated to GApplication or GtkApplication except that on linux, a lot of the functionality that seems related to what these objects seem to be about is implemented using DBus (at least when is involved).
