Heya,

I found it an interesting read and tried the examples. When I read about the fact that one can use other languages with the .Net-framework I had to think about xpcom (the framework on which firefox, ... is build). They have that too as far as I know. It's called xpConnect. Anyway, they have it for javascript/C++/... I believe they are working on python. Maybe also other languages ... Reading it again, I can be wrong ...

greetings,

Michel Brabants

I have looked at XPCOM and let me tell you the c bindings were horrific and made Corba look nice. GObject is a far better common object system especially when full introspection gets added as you will be able to do everything that XPCOM can do.
