I have a stupid question.  What is IDL?

Interface Definition Language. In our particular case, we use OMG CORBA
IDL (Object Management Group Common Object Request Brokering
Architecture) as CORBA is the basis of our IPC (Inter-Process
Communicaton). Does that make things clearer? :-)

Basically they're language-independent header files that define an
interface for talking to the addressbook. They live in /usr/share/idl.
