So, clearly some developers think that they need this :-)
and this is good, but is little too abstract to be useful I think.
I would like to suggest three things.
1) link to some situations where this has been proposed, and then a smarter
resolution via another method might be good. Is there a link to the
host-power on code as a clear commit?
2) I wonder about situations where developers are trying to get access to
some kind of debug info into the field, and that's why they look this. That
is, there isn't a way to wrap it up into something abstract, because the
point is to allow for deeper examination.
3) maybe link to situations where dbus has failed to be fast enough.
