https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=656325 tracks adding some
sugar/overrides to Gio to provide a nice and smooth server-side dbus
support. However, this is blocked by making the last piece
There is a patch, but it's a bit hackish and upstream doesn't like it.
The way to do it properly is to introduce a new API using closures
instead of passing raw structs, but that doesn't work right now:
I tried fixing this for several hours, but failed so far. The clean
solution would need some bigger refactoring in pygobject to only use
one set of marshallers instead of two. I wasn't able to come up with a
small patch to create Python wrappers for GVariant struct objects.
