Cool.  I will check it out.  What I did was to seperate all the CORBA
stuff off then added a couple of methods in gEdit to preform the tasks
I needed done.  If this could all be done a plug-in then that would be
a Good Thing.  Especially if it meant it would give me an hook into more
than one editor.  Cool.  Unfortunatly, what functunality the IDE will need
from the plug-in api is currently unknown since the project is so young. 
In any case, I will try and adapt my code into a plug-in.  The biggest
annoyance I've hit so far is MICO.  It's IDL compiler is less then impressive.
I was completely unsuccessful in generating C bindings and only moderately
successful with the C++ binding.  Not that I'm really complaining, I 
would _NEVER_ want to write an ORB.  They are tricky.

Anyway.  After I polish up my code, what should I do with it?  Email it to
you?  I've been working of you're 0.40 release.  BTW, do you have some
bandwidth to store the standalone IDE as well?
