But if you couple the existence of a D-Bus session bus that is specifically 
tied to that X11 server, we can talk about "X11 sessions". That's defined by 
the triad: user logging in, X11 display and the lifetime of the bus daemon.

Lennart is not the only D-Bus developer. In fact, he's primarily a systemd 
developer, not a D-Bus developer (at least until kdbus lands).

More than one active seat is a definite must. Whether systemd-login will 
support multiple logins for the *same* user, that's a matter for debate. As 
far as I understand, GNOME doesn't support it and wouldn't mind if the 
capability went away. KDE, on the other hand, does support multiple 
simultaneous logins of the same user and we'd like to see the support
