The full (short) doc on the dbus spec is here:


But the short version is:

- cache clearing and server sets over dbus
- signals broadcast when a dhcp lease is added, deleted, updated
- more friendly with systemd

Note that while this will end up as a runtime dep, I'm not going to
force it as a new option in the config. If someone "begrudgingly"
installs dbus-core only for this, enabling dbus causes dnsmasq to poll
repeatedly until dbus is found. extra/dbus will end up as an optdep.
