Thank you do much for your quick reply and the bug reference.

I would like to ask one high level question please. I am currently using
GDBus and  GDBus-codegen in our IPC framework. Once we switch to a kdbus
capable GDBus implementation, how much would I have to change in the
application GDBus code (using the DBUS system bus for process communication
between our own application processes)? From what I can gather reading
through the bug description, it feels like standard GDBus-codegen code
should still work transparently ... this is what I am hoping for.
