yes, I didn't want to mention any specific technology, and yes, I know
about BonoboApplication, which is great. The problem is, as you say,
that people tend to deprecate bonobo (not me, really :) in favor of
D-BUS, whose best thing is its desktop-independence.
I myself would vote for using Bonobo, but since people tend to prefer
D-BUS, I guess that's what we could use.
