	Heh ;-) well, I don't know quite what you're so happy about; but there
are several things that may make libbonobo unsuitable for your needs,
let me list them just in case you've not met them yet.

	a) Not Threaded - all requests are processed in the same thread,
	   re-enterantly - not always a massive problem ;-)

	b) bonobo-activation provides no distributed support - so you get
	   to solve the 'first reference' problem yourself without help
	   ( in practice if you have a shared NFS server or somesuch,
	     just writing an IOR to a common place is usually sufficient)

	Yes; sounds like it would allow that.

	Heh ;-) please let me know immediately you have problems, I'm very
interested in helping make this work for you.
