extend chkconfig to dbus services

Feature state

Description

chkconfig can be used to enable/disable init scripts and [x]inetd services. e.g.
chkconfig vsftpd on -> disable xinetd config and turns on vsftpd init script
chkconfig vsftpd xinetd -> turns off init script and enable xinetd config
chkconfig vsftpd off -> turns off init script and/or xinetd config

A similar mechanis could be used to manage dbus system services.
Currently there is no way to turn off dbus system services. As soon
a package drops a file in /usr/share/dbus-1/system-services/ the
service activates on demand.
Also, some can be started either via init script or via system bus
activation. Examples are avahi or hal.

What is missing is answer on questions:
1) Why one would need to start/stop dbus manually.
2) How it will influence automatic start?

this is about dbus services, not about dbus itself. The intention is to be able to enable or disable autostart for services. Currently there is no way to prevent autostart of dbus services that can be autostarted.
