It seemed to actually work based on quick tests, so I committed the
changes. This should make the D-Bus code paths easier to understand when
both old and new interfaces are included. I haven't done thorough
testing yet, so no promises that I did not break anything while going
through the changes.. In addition, I did not notice any clear place
where the previous duplicated code would actually have ended up
triggering the segfaults that showed backtraces with both old and new
D-Bus functions. Anyway, the end result should be quite a bit easier to
maintain, so its a good direction to take even if it did not fix the

As an extra bonus, this removed quite a bit of duplicated code:
