NDesk.DBus is supposed to be API-stable enough that third-party projects should
not bundle their own private copies. The changes applied to Zeroconf's copy
should be merged upstream, at which point we can stop bundling it.

I've filed a bug with NDesk.DBus' tracker:


please follow-up there if the patch I submitted (comparing Connection.cs from
0.6.1a and Zeroconf's copy) is inadequate.

The API version number will probably have to be bumped -- though since the
changes reported upstream are all additive, not bumping it would not affect
older applications either.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try compiling Zeroconf against either the latest stable NDesk.DBus or the
latest Git commit

Actual Results:  
Does not work; Zeroconf's changes to NDesk.DBus not committed upstream
