Let me add the following statement from ffado-devel to the discussion:


maybe the unbundling of dbus-c++ was premature.  Upstream appear not to
do any releases nor do they seem to have arrived at a stable API yet.
And downstreams have source incompatible versions of it or don't have it
at all.

If we arrive at the conclusion that dbus-c++ is unmaintainable, I'm happy
to re-add the embedded dbus-c++ bits upstream. Though I have commit
rights, we could also do it locally with a quilt patch.

Just my €0.02
