I've now done the mass-bug-filing for this. The bugs block
<https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=895291> and are
usertagged to appear in

Around 25% of the dependencies appear to have been unnecessary (in
packages that were already ported to GDBus, or packages whose maintainers
got confused about what APIs were provided by dbus-1, dbus-glib-1 and
gio-2.0), so I'm hoping that at least those can be addressed soon.
