I care. I would like to see bonobo (or some other COm technology) be
used all over the place instead of api calls via bindings for c headers.
It would be nice if GTK could have a bonobo interface too and therefore
everyone would have a choice whether to use bonobo or c header bindings
for any function. 

Of course for that to be practical, bonobo has to be fast and efficient
and thats sadly not the case with the current corba back end. 

Just think of all the effort that would be spared in creating bindings
whenever a library changes and yes scripting would be a hell of a lot
easier then.

A nice componentised  OO interface which is truly language independant
and fast - is that too much to ask for?

I am hoping D-Bus will come to the rescue...
