Well, that's why  I much prefer native being DCOP (well, OK, I also like DCOP 
more), and just re-marshalling messages that are meant for D-BUS hosts. This 
basically leaves all the old stuff unaffected, and all old code works just 
like before. No old app will ever dcop to org.freedesktop.foo.ping by 
accident w/complicated types (i.e. user might click on them in kdcop3, but 
will just get an "unknown type" error),  and the types that go across the 
boundary will be known in advance, defined by whatever D-BUS-based protocol 
is being talked.
