dbus has nothing to do with dns-lookups. In principle dbus is network-
transparent. But in practice only with complicated authentication (that only 
works on the same computer) or with a special patch to allow anonymous 
connections. So the default mode of the servers don't activate network 

The magic it provides:
De-coupling functionality from the gui. And allowing several guis to represent 
the same at the same time. And IPC in general.

Unless I missed a dbus-kit, one has nothing to do with another.

But I concur that the *kit crap is taking much to much space and time.
Someone should write drop-in packages that satisfy dependencies but don't run 
the stuff.
