For me it is on the critical path.
There is lot of things that should depends on it.
(for what I'm concerned about: KNotify ; the ability to execute action from 
khotkey daemon ;  KIMProxy/Telepathy ; .... }

Thanks Thiago for his work. I hope we can soon start porting kde to d-bus.

Yes, this is also one of the most important thing.

From what i see after my research, it's an api for KDEPIM.
But i don't know either. A replacement of libkabc ?  

Another thing, which go in the general "api stability" category:
What's going on with KListView ?  should we start porting to QTreeWidget or 
similar ? or should we wait a K{List,Tree}{Widget,View} ?
