As described in <https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2016/08/msg00554.html>
I'm trying to reduce how much dbus-launch is used in Debian.

This package currently has code that explicitly runs dbus-launch, without
a dependency on the dbus-x11 package that contains it. I would prefer this
to invoke dbus-daemon directly, similar to this Flatpak commit:
or this C code in D-Bus itself (search for --print-address):

If it would be more convenient, dbus-daemon can be asked to send both the
address and pid to stdout (--print-address=1 --print-pid=1). Their order
is undocumented but predictable, and I don't intend to break it in future
D-Bus releases.
