	Hmm; ok - but I'd avoid using bonobo_main - instead run the default
mainloop yourself - inasmuch that that loop is intended for the 'main'
thread to run really - and a number of exit conditions are slaved to it
- and I'm not certain that they'll still work well if it's run

	Right; of course - this whole thing sucks; in an ideal world CORBA's
event-loop / event processing API wouldn't blow great chunks - but ... I
guess this is good enough for now if you don't want to have a set of
synchronous methods that implement the behavior too.
