How about we start with: not having this discussion for the gazillionth 
time? It's not like it matters anyway. We had X of them all of them 
came out with "DBUS isn't perfect but it's the best we got and we need 
to support it no matter what we do so we can go with it all the way". 

Discussions like this one are too abstract for mailing lists, that's why 
we were talking about it on aKademy. And to be honest having such 
discussions without code is an utter waste of time. Lets say we agree 
to go with solution C and then what? Someone needs to implement it, 
right? So what happens if someone goes and implements solution B really 
well and no one implements solution C. 

So yeah, there's absolutely nothing to discuss. We have Qt4 DBUS 
bindings if you have a better idea - go and implement it and then we 
can discuss merits of picking that over DBUS. 

Question of DBUS vs non-existant-solutions is always in favor of DBUS no 
matter how amazing are all the non-existant-features of the 
non-existand solution.


Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere may be happy.
