Great! I have been looking into making VCG[1] graph layout plug for
I hope that this would be the right interface layer for a general
component that could be used by many different applications.

It might be a little heavy, but DIA needs to have a better and more
fine tuned API. The Python GIMP-style Plugin does not cut it to be

I have also been looking at XPCom, they seem to use a modified version
of the libIDL compiler... 

I guess the Important is to check any IDL against a number of compilers
and make sure that it is compilable by all.

The thing is that it really confusing for me just how many different
interfaces there are.. I feel like i have to interface to the
interfaces just to maintain some form of independence.... 

I guess CIL will provide some form of better interface that Miguel was
talking about in the positional paper on mono.

Anyway, thanks for the information, I will start playing with bonobo.

There must be a way to be able to make a high-speed stream of data
interface across.
