The only issue i see is that the dbus people has targeted the win32 port
 to release 1.2 The
current release is 0.6.1.  1.2 will be somewhere in the not so near
future i guess :-(

If kdelibs trunk will have dbus support, people will ask for dbus for
win32 and it will be very hard to track changes without having dbus
win32 sources complete in cvs or svn.

The choice I see would be

1. to have a specific branch in the freedesktop cvs or if the dbus
people does not like this
2. to place dbus-win32 sources temporary in the kde svn may be kdesupport ?

Any comments ?
