  I took a quick look at these, and I don't change my opinion at all. In
fact, I become more worried.

  And, BTW, my opinion is (not that it matters too much):

	1. KDE/GNOME integration is indeed good;

	2. D-BUS is bad. A better alternative would be:

		a. Let KDE keep DCOP;

		b. Let GNOME keep CORBA;

		c. Make a cross-desktop daemon that supports a specific CORBA IDL
interface (sendMessage, receiveMessage, etc.) and also supports DCOP,
and routes messages between the 2 system.

	3. I don't like message-oriented communication much; I see this as a
sacrifice that has to be made for the sake of integration. However, I
only wish this is used only for a selected (and small) group of features
that need to be cross-desktop.
