The libdbus control plugin is still waking up the CPU two times per seconds.
That is the only remaining interface that I know doing this, and is
unacceptable. To make matters worse, it implements an interface (MPRIS) that
is widely accepted as broken by design. Last, its "one VLC instance" per
desktop feature is not working correctly.
Unless it gets fixed quickly, I propose we remove it. On top of that, libdbus
is not quite thread-safe.
