Except for dbus. It requires a version < 0.30 which is bizare when it
needs the latest totem. So even on FC4 you can't use dbus as it comes
with 0.33 and you need to update your totem (and the various extra
bits it depends upon). Although I did ask about it once before and I
seem to remember the answer to why was that the api was moving too
