There are already several fd.o packages that need to be updated this
way, and it turns out to be manageable, since everything using them is
either updated frequently or small enough to be trivially patched.

One thing that would be much appreciated, however, is proper versioning
of the interface. This is not as simple to do over D-Bus as with a
regular library, but if you could at least mark prominently in the NEWS
file which versions extend the protocol and which versions break it, it
would help a lot with managing dependencies and upgrades.
