I was just speaking about an API merger, an API in this sense is nothing 
but a specification. In both cases, OpenOffice will still run on 
non-GNOME systems with the same functionality.

VCL is much deeper in the OpenOffice code that the API is nowadays.

Let's not necessarily take Bonobo 1.0 for the merger, probably it will be 
Bonobo 2.0 or whatever. But if we want that, we have to start now to 
unify the APIs - in the meaning of designing new APIs together. Why do 
you thin, the Bonobo API will change faster than the OpenOffice API
