That's what I said in my original email:

"But my intention was 
to overhaul it to transmit the commands over D-Bus (a private connection 
or via bus), but keep the data transfers on a socket."

"In fact, in my history of over-engineering solutions to simple problems, 
I even conceived an auto-negotiated multiple-transport solution: POSIX 
message queues, System V shm, pipe/FIFO, Unix sockets, TCP sockets, D-Bus 
P2P, D-Bus bus."
