Is there such a thing as list of available DBus services?
I've stumbled upon a few (like those provided by NetworkManager, Rhythmbox, Skype, HAL).
I wonder if I can find a rather complete list of provided services/interfaces.

Session:

dbus-send --session           \
  --dest=org.freedesktop.DBus \
  --type=method_call          \
  --print-reply               \
  /org/freedesktop/DBus       \
  org.freedesktop.DBus.ListNames

System:

dbus-send --system            \
  --dest=org.freedesktop.DBus \
  --type=method_call          \
  --print-reply               \
  /org/freedesktop/DBus       \
  org.freedesktop.DBus.ListNames

You can also use DFeet if you prefer a GUI tool.
