[Dev] D-Bus + Cynara

Hi Patrick,

Yes, the code was merged, maybe little bit too early, but except Jacek (he's
made proper review) who is working with you on DBus, no one is using this
code now except experimental code that Jacek Bukarewicz wrote. It will
evolve anyway, we will change it (although I don't believe that reverting it
is a good idea as there was no Cynara release), if you have any proposal for
changes, feel free to write about them and/or let us know with a patch, your
comments are valuable for the project.

What I think caused this situation is the fact that currently gerrit only
adds Bumjin and Casey as reviewers and we tend to forget adding other
reviewers. Bumjin and Casey are taking care of security in Tizen as a whole
and they should not spend even 30 mins daily on assigning proper reviewers
to patches. I think this is the topic that deserves better discussion. We
have a system that is not configured properly (there was the idea of
"sub-domains" but where did it go?).

I noticed that the async API was merged
(https://review.tizen.org/gerrit/25416) without discussing it on the
list first. I think it would have been better to get a +1 from all
relevant users of the new API (Jacek for dbus-daemon, someone else for
Crosswalk). Jacek left some comments, but I see nothing from the
Crosswalk team.

I'm not particularly happy about how the asynchronous API was completely
separated from the synchronous API (even the constants are defined
twice!). Is mixing the synchronous and asynchronous API in the same
process possible?

The documentation leaves some questions open (what is the caller
supposed to do with the file descriptor?).

Anyway, I think it is usable for dbus-daemon. Jacek, have you perhaps
started to verify that by writing code?
