Hey sean,

dbus-launch is in the dbus-x11 package because it brings in x11 dependancies
which caused some people concern who needed to audit D-Bus but didn't want to
have to audit X11 in their enviornments.  Right now it is pulled in by
desktop-printing which has been pulled in by comps since at least FC4.  dbus-z11
should really be pulled in by anything that needs the session bus to run.  I'll
put out a shoutout on fedora-devel for this.

Closing as notabug because there is no option for not my bug :-)
