dbus_call_sync

Usage:

my $processes=$object->list_processes("someuser");
(MADI: no (specific) example given in the POD for this method)

This requests that a remote method call be performed 'synchronously'. That is, wait until a reply or an error is returned from the remote method before proceeding.

dbus_call_async

Usage:

my $asyncreply=$object->list_processes(dbus_call_async, "someuser");
MADI: Will the user pick up the reply via the Net::DBus::Reactor->run event loop in this case?

This requests that a remote method call be performed 'asynchronously'. That is, the program will continue without waiting until a reply or error is received.

dbus_call_noreply

Usage:

$object->list_processes(dbus_call_noreply, "someuser");
This is a poor example, as a list would normally be returned, but it shows the syntax.
MADI: Find a better example that shows an accurate call we would not care to get a reply from (ie: a remote call to update the network devices?).

This sends a request to a remote method call but never looks for a reply of any type. This is useful when you know the remote method call will never reply  

Any questions, feedback, advice, complaints or meanderings are welcome.
