    ok, I fixed it. I had to explicitly make the metaclass' __init_() method
call the inherited __init__() methods by hand. here's the outcome:

MetaQObject= type (QObject)
MetaObject= type (dbus.service.Object)

class MetaPlayer (MetaQObject, MetaObject):
    """Dummy metaclass that allows us to inherit from both QObject and d.s.Object"""
    def __init__(cls, name, bases, dct):
        MetaObject.__init__ (cls, name, bases, dct)
        MetaQObject.__init__ (cls, name, bases, dct)

class Player (dbus.service.Object, QObject):
    __metaclass__= MetaPlayer

(Not so) Random fortune:
[...] we think the command-line interface is great. We want everyone to
use it. CLI is good for you: it allows easier reproduction [...], it
allows scripting. SSH and screen are great. That’s the way things should
be done.
