i imagine this could be done via pam too

i dont think this is a global dbus session.  it's in profile.d which means it 
gets executed at shell login time.  i think you meant .bash_login rather than 
.bashrc.

probably the only place this could be integrated is in the dbus ebuild itself.  
install it as a doc file and elog the info to make the user aware of it.  i 
don't think this is something we want to install automatically.
