yes, just it would not neccessarily be dragonflyBSD, that enables you to
write it that way, but dbus. in the end we might want a way to propagate
these events from the kernel (your clock example maybe). this is perfectly
possible, when a wrapper above dbus exists.
additionally it should not be too hard to implement.
