Bear in mind that dbus is not running on servers by default.  So that would
be a fine solution for the desktop, but there's a larger architectural
decision to confront there if we think that should be the solution on
servers as well.

I personally think we should bite the bullet and run dbus on servers as
well, but the server folks may disagree. ;)  In any event, there are other
places where lack of dbus is already causing suffering on the server, such
as with upstart bash-completion support.
