Any comments? :)  Can you think of any operations that we currently need
to do that won't fit into this API?  We don't need the
track_service_type()/untrack_service_type() stuff since the PS will now
be global; though that stuff could be done in the thin Python shim that
we'll need to make the dbus stuff somewhat simpler.
