nderstanding #systemd # 13 addendum
Just a FYI dbus is NOT a part of systemd. It was created for Gnome, so while technically not systemd, systemd depends on it so much that they're basically inseparable.
There was work to get a kernel dbus, but it was rejected by the kernel folks. So the systemd folks are working on dbus-broker which is fully backwards compatible with dbus, but as is systemd tradition, is more expansive and better suited to systemd and other applications.
