Cause they ( use dbus, which makes sense IMO. There ain't
that many alternatives out there. Gnome just follows the path and I think
modern KDE does this too.
I was looking recently in bluetooth which also uses dbus, so if you want to
communicate with bluetooth (bluez5 and I think bluez4 too) you have to use
dbus- there ain't much choice. Luckily someone ported qt dbus to trinity
and we have tqt dbus now and I think it works pretty well.
So if synaptic uses dbus and you want to use it, you have to stick to
those "ingeniouse inventions"
