Isn't that exactly what the assemblies' strong names are for? dbus#  
is an external library so one version could be taken and would be  
installed into the GAC parallel to any potentially more recent, API- 
breaking version the user might use. Breaking changes would then only  
occur if Mono chooses to upgrade its dbus# version used.
