	That's sounds great but it isn't what I mean. The languages
should also be abstracted here, so the IDE shouldn't know about whether
you're coding in C/C++ Perl, Pascal, Basic ;) etc... The objects you
code should be glued together using CORBA. That means that a compiler is
somekind of plugin for the IDE.

	Looks like we all want an IDE revolution but don't have the
"balls" to start a project (at least I don't ;)
