The problem I'm facing now is how to define which methods will be exposed 
through the DBUS channel.

First of all, I don't see how to set multiple interfaces in the same 
object so that they appear to have different methods externally.

Second, I don't see a way of specifying which slots can be called 
externally. The bindings allow any slot to be called.

Third, the bindings don't have yet any way of listing the available 
methods in an interface. I think all the information we need is already 
collected by moc (properties, signals and slots), so it would be possible 
to handle that at the binding level and generate the introspection format 
on the fly.

I have to investigate further.
