This is what I came to, too. I just realized, that
a) dbus adds to much overhead
b) dbus experience can be reduced a lot on slow systems (due to
timeouts) - as the calls involved can be really consuming. This is
perhaps in contrary to the usage in most dbus applications
Though I still like the idea of putting dbus-bindings on top (optional
of course). And then only once.
I also was in the mid of getting a c-lib to access portage.

Of course :) - though I don't think it can be re-used. Except perhaps
the "access portage from c" part.
