But then, there is a problem if one actually wants the server address
information that --print-address provides. Alexis' 'run' script for
example wants to save that to a file (apparently in a directory
suitable for s6-envdir). If the output is sent to the notification
pipe instead, s6-supervise will 'eat' it while waiting for the final
newline character, and then the information is lost.

And more generally, there's also the question about how 'ready'
dbus-daemon actually is when the point in its code that prints the
server address is reached. I can't really say without looking at the
code; dbus-daemon has many duties once its UNIX domain socket is
