Correct.  You can blame various upstream system developers for that. ;-)

As an aside, if someone else would like to add a plugin to tie into DBUS
for automount and such, I would be willing to work with them on the TDE
API side to make sure that the task can be accomplished.  I just refuse to
rely solely on projects which both use DBUS and are constantly being
replaced with a newer completely incompatible version.
