I am not "ready" to put dbus into 4.1. It may happen sometime, but I need to study it thoroughly first, especially reports that it slows things down.

When I was trying to reduce the size of systems built with Gentoo portage, I was never able to measure the effect of dbus itself. The difficulty was that including it always pulled in lots of other things. If you include it, I believe it will be very hard to draw the line and keep things reasonably small.
