Hi!
Another request for information on your requirements for the C stub library.

First, Alberto has pointed out that "stub" can mean code that you will 
directly include (cut and paste) into projects, while library of course 
means the opposite. Are you after a libmoonshot shared library in its 
own package, or something else?

Secondly, I don't know if you're aware but access to D-Bus from C is 
generally done bound to a specific platform library - ie. GLib, Qt etc. 
This is because D-Bus requires a message processing system - ie. an 
event-driven main loop. If you'll be making D-Bus calls from mech_eap, 
or linking to a library that does, this essentially adds a dependency on 
GLib, and a requirement that a GMainLoop is running while the DBus calls 
are being processed. Using libdbus directly is discouraged[1] and would 
be much more work.

Attached is a draft of the API. Currently I've exposed a few GLib 
primitives, but it would be possible to wrap these so that GLib is not a 
dependency on Windows.

Thanks for your help
Sam

"Keep in mind that libdbus is a low-level library, intended to be the 
backend for a language binding and with extra complexity needed to 
implement dbus-daemon. You will save yourself a lot of pain if you use a 
higher-level wrapper or a reimplementation."
