        Quite - and indeed we need a service based concept to make
monikers really fly; until then we should use new interfaces IMHO - it's
the right approach for now.

        The wrong approach is to add a SQL-like query language into the
string :-)

        Perhaps in the deep and distant future. For now, making
bonobo-activation do activations efficiently might be time better
spent ;-)
