Yeah, I know I don't really know what I'm talking about. But there was
talk about GNOME not being prepared to adopt DCOP to solve IPC, just
like KDE appear not to be prepared to adopt CORBA. I was assuming that
DCOP therefore had functionality similar to D-BUS, since that's what the
thread was about.

If it doesn't, this is a red herring.
