This dbus daemon shipped with dbus itself can act as system as well as session 
bus. libdbus itself has everything to implement a bus, dbus-daemon just adds 
specifics such as security policies, selinux support, authentication and 
activation of services. So it might perhaps make sense to implement a 
dbus-dcop bridge by implementing a session bus inside the dcopserver using 
libdbus. (that would not include bridging to the system bus though)
