rodrigo seems eager to help out with it.
But there’s a lot of CORBA BonoboObject-based servers in

I’m working on that
in bonobomm, and at the moment it looks like we’ll have to

client reference. It’ll be simple code, but it might not be
I made some patches to make libbonoboui’s _new()
functions language-binding-friendly, but I’m having a hard

I also started libglademm2, and posted a libglade patch

Together with Dennis Cranston, I patched the GNOME logout
