If this is to be done some really good documentation could go a long way
here.  There have been some recent discussions on the GNOME lists about
D-Bus/DCOP/CORBA.  Lack of documentation was cited as a weakness in the
GNOME camp.  I also got the impression that Bonobo/ORBit2 was difficult
for many to get a good grip on.  Having never used it I can't say but
some good C# binding might be a big boost one thinks.
