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.
