it works for me, apart, of course, from a few bugs that I don't know how
hard would it be to fix. But the global answer is "ORBit and Bonobo do
work", specially since 2.0, when, unfortunately, a lot of apps dropped
bonobo due to the (many) problems found in Bonobo for 1.4. (also due,
like in the gnome-db case you mention below, to the overuse of Bonobo
for things that can perfectly be done without it)

I must say that my experience (not as big as I'd like) with bonobo 2.x
has been a lot nicer than with previous versions. Of course, it's still
not perfect, but saying that "it's not working so far" is a big

yes, I removed it from the basic data access layer, to make it have no
dependencies, a thing that was required for things like Mono, gnumeric
and Abiword, for instance, and which has helped a lot in the acceptance
of libgda as a lightweight data access library. But it has nothing to do
with this argument, specially since I didn't invent anything new, I just
replaced the CORBA part with GModule's, to make it more lightweight.
