Description Robert Staudinger 2012-01-25 12:25:44 UTC
Currently there's no restriction from running n services with the same name (e.g. org.ytstenut.Example) next to each other in the same dbus session. It would be good (albeit look a bit weird) if the dbus object name included the service name (e.g. org.freedesktop.Telepathy.ytstenut.org.ytstenut.Example) to prevent that.

Problem is that duplicated service(name)s are not handled correctly, so that would lead to undefined behaviour.

The spec would have to be amended to mention this uniqueness.

Or maybe append a hash of the service name, like org.freedesktop.Telepathy.ytstenut.$hash ?
