In make_bonobo_activation_query_with_known_mime_type from

it says (among other checks):

/* Check if the component has the interfaces we need.
 * We can work with either a Nautilus View, or
 * with a Bonobo Control or Embeddable that supports
 * one of the three persistence interfaces:
 * PersistStream, ProgressiveDataSink, or
 * PersistFile.

(Followed by the same conditions written in OAF query language; or is it
bonobo-activation query language?)

So yes, implement Bonobo::Control plus PersistStream or PersistFile or
Nautilus::View. Bonobo::Embeddable and ::ProgessiveDataSink are dead,
aren't they?

Maybe we can hijack a corner of the GNOME wiki
( and start collecting information about
this stuff there. Later we can make some DocBook files for libbonoboui's
api doc.
