After your hint I remember that Martin Kosina from Intel had joined the 
dbus mailing list and then he told me in a private mail that he has 
taken Tor's patches and is working on it.

I have to get some paperwork done before I release my stuff (GPL review
procedure here at the Borg), so that's really the only
holdup right now. My main agenda is to get the Win32 stuff incorporated
into the CVS (so we don't have to back-port it every time) and hopefully
write some documentation. 

One open things are the Qt binding. Does anyone know if there difference 
to expect between unix and windows ?
