dcop is not a daemon?

Feature request:

My mailwatcher script is calling dcop from the hard drive for every 
incoming mail, and my putting a set -x in the top of it, then watching 
the output trace, shows a quite large lag in its doing that.

But I see no daemon launcher in /etc/init.d.

It seems to me that if dcop were a memory resident process like dbus is, 
the HD would be spared that that access, and the response time would be 
2% of what it is now.

If this version of kmail in R14.0.4 can use a dbus feed too, that problem 
is solved by my changing one var in the top of my script.  Does anyone 
know? I ask because if I switch it, and it doesn't work, the dbus buffer 
gets stuffed and it takes a reboot to fix that, a dbus restart doesn't 
seem to re-init it.  BTDT, several times.


Cheers, Gene Heskett
