corba/gnorba/bonobo documentation + misc question/ideas


Well, since last week, 2 new chapters were written and the first one was 
The 4th chapter is expected to be completed by the end of next week.
I hope that some of you will go at (html version) or (docbook sgml 
to let me know about what you think about this documentation.
Comments and even flames are welcome.

1) eliot: if gnome_get_name_service exists, then will not work ? (with ORBit 
, of course)
CosNaming_NamingContext ns = CORBA_ORB_resolve_initial_service (orb, 
"NameService", &ev);

2) this is just an idea: was wondering : why not having a window manager 
using some special gtk widgets to decorate windows ? this is stupid ? or 
allready on the work ? this would instanously give us an enlightenment like 
window manager... Perhaps is this much too slow.

3) does libart use gdk at the lowest level ? or xlib ?

4) i used kde 6 months ago and gnome since then. Some friends used kde, still 
use kde and tried gnome: they agree with me. Why are gnome applications much 
slower than kde ? This is really noticeable even on fast machines and my P 
233 with 96MB and 2MB video really IS slow. I understand that many parameters 
may go into such a question and the question itself does not make much sense 
but it is something i can see and it makes me angry.

5) last one, hopefully :) Is there something planned to implement something 
like kde's file library: the one which abstracts completely applications from 
the network and allows any app to work on distant files. I think this is near 
gmc's virtual file system but this file system is not really available to 
other applications than gmc. am i wrong ?

I understand these questions are rather strange together but... some of them 
have been on my mind for too long. I hope some will answer.
