A student of mine has recently started working on playground/webtech/dbus-ws 
to explore network transparency, including security implications. A third bus 
("network bus") is introduced by that work. Of course I'm looking for further 
mentors/reviewers ;)

One issue with graphical frontends is that they always assume the existence of 
only two buses (including dbus-viewer, kdbus and qdbusviewer). They should be 
improved to allow connections to more than the two.
