I'm arguing "too much code for the developer that wants to use these
features". And the amount of infrastructure needed as well...

I personnally don't give a damn about 100k of memory, if it did what I
wanted. It doesn't. The API is gross.

Give me the ability to do IPC with Corba/Bonobo without
writing/compiling/putting in my build system a .idl, and without having
to install a .server file, and I'll use it.
