Since dbus-broker aims to be a drop-in compatible replacement for the standard dbus, could its package be marked as providing dbus? That would allow users to remove dbus from the system (without using -Rdd or something), preventing any potential conflicts from having both accidentally running at the same time.
This task depends upon

dbus package would need a new subpackage dbus-libs since a lot of stuff depend on libdbus.
