ok, then excuse my ignorance, but how does scripting with at-spi look
like? I mean, if I'm not wrong, at-spi allows you to access the
individual widgets on a given application, to set / get their values, or
simulate actions (key presses, etc). But, I can't see how this could
help in doing high-level scripting, like the example of Evolution's
sendMail method I mentioned before.
