Feel free to port the dbus stuff to Windows, and you will quickly realize, why 
it was left out by the Qt developers in the first place...

Since PyQt is multi platform by definition, all its examples should be 
provided everywhere.

If you really like to contribute something easy, send over a patch for that 
example, that shows a QDialog noting "DBus is not supported on this platform" 
and exits, if importing QtDBus fails.
