Oh that "hard to solve problems",  what are they? There are two main
problem with it:

1. Reentrancy (I think that it can be fixed, why not add locks to

2. Easy GObject wrapping. It doesn't seems to be such problem,
especially in 
light of addition of scripting languages to platform. It really hard to
that new language will be also GObject-based.

3. Political problems - bonobo have compromised itself, I don't know why
and how.
The main problem is that _some_ gnome developers don't like it.

About DBUS it's hard to say that it will be replacement some day. First
problem is
that it's not component system, just message passing API. 

What about implementation of CORBA 3.0 standards with ORBit codebase?
That can give us new component system, rather powerfull and extensible.
