there is the cost involved in having a multiplicity of APIs, which is why i 
suppose you are getting with "not ideal". having one API for 
session<->session IPC and one for session<->system means people have to 
master more API, which raises the bar further.

and as more DBUS services appear, it'll just get to be a more and more 
confusing mish-mash of "dcop here, dbus there, dcop under there".
