I don't think this point is an issue. The wire format for D-BUS is defined. 
So we can write our own libkdbus library if we so wish, with C++ bindings.

It would be necessary to have a library anyways if my idea of a DCOP alias 
inside D-BUS is to be followed.

That someone else would be us. Putting the KDE weight behind it could give 
the momentum it needs. DCOP and MCOP are largely KDE-exclusive.

That doesn't have to go away.
