 Looking at upstart-0.6.3-3.fc13.src.rpm, the specfile
includes /sbin/shutdown etc. ... and looking at the tarball those seem
to come from util/*.c. Which AFAICS require DBus to work.

 Also given that init now listens and is controlled by DBus, has anyone
done any analysis of how resistant DBus services are to DOS attacks?
