I tried implementing that last year and gave up.

Also note that most ioslave operations are blocking. Proper D-Bus working 
requires a thread that won't block.

So, instead, I'd recommend starting a new thread and opening a D-Bus 
connection there. The D-Bus connection is handled by the thread that 
opened the connection.
