Your right, although I have not tried it.  /usr/bin/a2j_control should 
be used to start/stop in D-Bus mode. More details here.

I'm always thinking of the better ways to tackle this. Perhaps we could 
do something as you suggest... shouldn't be too hard.

Have you tried Rawhide? I maintain rawhide on at least two of my 
systems, with only the very occasional breakages. Fedora as a 
distribution tends to be the first to go with the big changes (I'm 
thinking systemd / Gnome 3 etc) and I'm not sure that this kind of 
effort could be coordinated into smaller rolling releases.
I find that most packages are relatively up to date in rawhide / rawhide 
-1 . Raising bugs to alert packages to new upstream releases is always a 
really good idea. Some packagers maintain so many it is hard to keep 
track of.
