Though (as always) I'm no expert in this, I fell really urged to second
the recommendation on learning more about Plan 9. It's *awesome* both
in design and implementation: unlike LP software which appear nice in
mind but suck in reality, Plan 9 is practically proved well-thought
product, and truly masterpiece that can be compared to TeX and so on.
Plan 9 is a golden mountain in system design, just like DJB's codebase
as in security engineering; and by the way, the readability of the Plan
9 codebase is also very excellent.

And a little further on the tangent (since I think it is not quite worth
subscribing to the `skaware' list just to post a single message; also
please ignore this if the following have already been considered): I
know about (unreleased) skabus, which I believe will be quality product
in comparison to dbus, but I think it will still be beneficial to learn
from non-dbus message buses as well: from what I have read about, there
are already COBRA, DCOP and TIPC, and TIPC is quite a nice reference
among them AFAIK. There are discussions in Gentoo Forums about this:
<> (with occasional
excursions, but generally on topic; the TIPC-related posts are in
particular worth reading).
