My understanding is that it is not just a port. Re-written from
scratch, I think. Stuff that just tries to be a lazy man's sockets
largely left out, I think.
I would be more interested to take a look at the alternative's code,
than than to the original's. The few tools'code I've seen of same tool
but implemented by the net/open/freeBSD and versions I could find in
linux, had a huge difference in terms of code clarity.
I would not say that you were exactly wrong. Portability is not just
a matter of getting things to compile, and there are some features of
dbus that one would just as soon leave out when re-implementing it.
Well, maybe dbus itself is not portable, nor clean (I said maybe. Code
cleanness is a matter of opinion, and I only have read 2 source files
just now) but if there is another implementation around, then at least
what it provides can be provided in other systems, eventually in a
Just curious, what's the name of this alternative? I would like to see
if it could replace the original, or why not taking a quick look at it's
source code. Just to build my own opinion.
