Creating an access point with wpa_supplicant via dbus interface

I've written an application that allows a user to connect to a wifi
network. The application uses the dbus interface of wpa supplicant, and
it works great.
I need a way for the user to be able to configure the system as an
access point as well. I've tried setting mode=2 and frequency=2412 but
with no luck. I'm thinking I might have to instead use hostapd, but
that becomes a pain because hostapd kills wpa_supplicant when it starts
and has no dbus interfaces that I can find.
What I'd really like to know is: is there anyway to use wpa_supplicant
via the dbus interface to configure it as an access point? If not, are
there any undocumented dbus interfaces that can control hostapd?
