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 cleaner way.

openbsd's website allows you to browse their source. Their dbus would
be in their ports (packages) tree, I think. Try looking at dbus* under

http://cvsweb.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/ports/x11/ [3]

From what I can see, it's only a bunch of patches. Probably patches built on original sources, so, well, it's the same implementation with few more patches.
