Sure, same as applications dealing with images using the Kipi plugins for 
sharing implementations of common tasks.

Excellent, so can any of the developers involved with this effort compile a 
list of D-Bus introspection files (probably as links into the repository) for 
the thread starter so he can implement the necessary adaptors/interfaces in
