Description: =======================================
        dbus-python_: Python bindings for D-Bus
        =======================================
        
        .. _dbus-python: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/DBusBindings#python
        
        dbus-python is the original Python binding for ``dbus``, the reference
        implementation of the D-Bus protocol.
        
        Online documentation can be found at
        <http://dbus.freedesktop.org/doc/dbus-python/>.
        
        Problems and alternatives
        =========================
        
        dbus-python might not be the best D-Bus binding for you to use. dbus-python
        does not follow the principle of "In the face of ambiguity, refuse the
        temptation to guess", and can't be changed to not do so without seriously
        breaking compatibility.
        
        In addition, it uses libdbus (which has known problems with multi-threaded
        use) and attempts to be main-loop-agnostic (which means you have to select
        a suitable main loop for your application).
        
        Alternative ways to get your Python code onto D-Bus include:
        
        * GDBus, part of the GIO module of `GLib`_, via GObject-Introspection and
          `PyGI`_ (uses the GLib main loop and object model)
        
        * QtDBus, part of `Qt`_, via `PyQt`_ (uses the Qt main loop and object model)
