As described in <https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2016/08/msg00554.html>
I'm trying to reduce how much dbus-launch is used in Debian.
This package currently uses dbus-launch for tests, explicitly invoking

It should be possible to replace the use of dbus-launch as follows:

* build-depend on dbus (>= 1.8) instead of dbus-x11
* in tests/Makefile.am, check for dbus-run-session instead of dbus-launch
* in tests/Makefile.am, instead of $(srcdir)/run-tests.sh run
  dbus-run-session -- $(srcdir)/run-tests.sh
* in tests/run-tests.sh, do not unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS
* in tests/run-tests.sh, do not eval `dbus-launch --sh-syntax`
* in tests/run-tests.sh, do not kill $DBUS_SESSION_BUS_PID

These changes should go upstream. dbus-run-session has been available
since dbus 1.8, which was first released as stable in early 2014 and
is currently the oldest branch that has any sort of upstream security
