	Of course, good solutions to the reference counting issues are
most welcome, however the "just don't do it" is no solution, since we then
simply rely on X getting it right - and we don't always have an X
connection eg. gconfd, oafd, monikers etc. etc.

	To do this, we need some heavy duty ORB hooks, and to have more
information as to the intention of a ref, or better still built in
automatic Bonobo ref counting support.

	Either way - it is a mine field,
