They can coexist quite happily.  While it doesn't really make sense to
have two interfaces that do exactly the same thing, there needs to be
some overlap to allow clients to be rewritten.

With the versions of dbus in current linux distributions, writing a
client is hard, and the work would have to be redone when dbus finally
gets a stable API/ABI.  If the bonobo interface was removed for 0.9, I'd
expect this to just stop people from upgrading.
