I think it is quite possible.  However, you'd probably need a new system
dbus config file, if nothing else.  But here's the interesting part: how
does libdbus talk to the system bus?  I don't know whether the path to
the system bus' Unix domain socket is hardcoded in libdbus at build
time, or what.  We can certainly change the location of the system bus
daemon's socket in system.conf, but I'm unsure how to point libdbus
there.  It's not an environment variable like the session bus AFAIK.
