Umm, yes and no.  I am not just talking about reusing existing Bonobo
components; we're implementing Bonobo services without ORBit2 and C

It's a good example of using something other than C+ORBit2 on the client
side.  But as Gergo says, if what you want is to implement a Bonobo
service, you have to do more work.  We plan to do that work for Control,
and don't think it will be that bad.  I dunno about the menu-merging,
that indeed might turn out to be a PITA.
