i'm  just going to trying to summarize even more from what Marc has
said. There are two issues that have become tangled up in this recent
email flurry.

1) the current D-Bus support can be mishandled by packagers and this
can lead to problems for some users
2) the only actual implementation that uses the control API is based
on D-Bus, and this is not a source of happiness and cake for everyone.

There is nothing stopping other implementations (pure C, OSC, python
etc) using the control API, but at this time, nothing else does.
Stephane has attempted to correct problem (1) in svn with warnings
etc. to packagers.
