From the dbus documentation is sounds like the C API for dbus is pretty
low level, though I imagine the GLib bindings are better and might be a
reasonable way to access the API (though you'd be using the GLib data
types instead of the Objective C data types). dbus is written with the
intention that higher-level APIs are written on top of it, not so much
for direct use.
