OK. I started working on common dbus code that both the old and new
interface share. This compiles, but I have not yet run any tests on it.
Anyway, this looks quite straightforward, so I would hope to get this
into working condition in the near future.


I did find a memory leak that was triggered by the new D-Bus code in
when getting network properties. Anyway, I don't know whether this could
have been severe enough to eat gigabytes of memory.. Well, maybe if you
were running an infinite loop of Get/GetAll properties on the Network
