As more and more services start to interact with this dbus thing, I'd like to move the new dbus-core package into core. This pulls in one extra dependency from extra, which is expat at this moment.
Which software is interacting with wpa_supplicant using dbus? Is it NetworkManager or something like that?
The dbus service will be let disabled by default, right?
It's worthy remembering that wpa_supplicant already supports IPC by using UNIX domain sockets or UDP sockets, which are Linux default/native stuff. (see )

my support for [core], as an upcoming netcfg version will take advantage of the wpa_supplicant dbus interface.
Please avoid using dbus in netcfg. I like it because it's clean, KISS, and uses only default/native stuff. I can help integrating with UNIX domain sockets or UDP sockets if needed.
