That test is laughable. Don't take it seriously any more than you take
seriously any kiddie's benchmarking. It does some very weird testing and
comes up with pretty inconsequential conclusions. String comparisons?!

Caching of what?

Yes, it's using sockets. What else would it be using?
Now, libdbus-1 can use some optimisation in the marshalling code. My own
tests indicate it can be slow. But compared to the two task-switches
necessary to actually relay data to a remote process, that's negligible.
