Something that uses the platform's native desktop bus, as far as something like

If 2 applications communicate via QtDBus calls it doesn't really matter what
QtDBus does, it hides the implementation details. Instead of a daemon there
could be an angel that handles the communication ;)

Well, that's the main point, isn't it. Replacing dbus by something that does the
same thing almost the same way only in order to avoid using dbus doesn't make a
lot of sense.
I wasn't wondering aloud how we could do something completely different, but
rather what could be improved to make dbus a true cross-platform daemon-based
desktop bus service that cannot be accused of being a fish out of the water.
