[sugar] Imminent change to dbus-python async call timeouts

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
The version of dbus-python used in Trial-3 and sugar-jhbuild has a bug
when setting non-default timeouts on asynchronous D-Bus calls: the
timeout was meant to be in seconds, but is actually in milliseconds.
dbus-python 0.82.2 fixes this bug.
In the interests of sanity (and also catching up with current bugfixes) I'd
like to get dbus-python 0.82.3 (released today) into sugar-jhbuild and daily
builds, so it can go in FRS/1.0 builds. This will mean everyone who uses
non-default timeouts for asychronous dbus-python calls will need to change
their timeouts to be 1000 times shorter.
Having done a quick grep, I believe this affects:
If you use a non-default timeout on any other asynchronous D-Bus calls, please
let me know, so I can coordinate with you when I switch to the newer
