I find dbus' behavior in this very annoying.  I understand the reasoning
(especially on upgrade), but I'd really prefer to see something more
like libc's handling.  Even more. I'd prefer if all of this logic could
actually be moved out of the packages themselves, perhaps into a
'needs-restart' trigger that could be run once at the end of the
upgrade.  Making a more generalized solution would allow the libc-style
handling to be done more easily for other library upgrades.
