Oops, must read better. Should be 

typedef unsigned long SearchOption
const SearchOption REG_REGEX = 1;
const SearchOption REG_ICASE = 2;
const SearchOption REG_NOSUB = 4;
const SearchOption REG_NEWLINE = 8;

like in your example. The first one might need some extra explaining,
it's a flag whether to use regex's or not. The rest is from regex(3)

hmm, so like?:

interface FileFactory : GNOME::GenericFactory {
	exception NotFound {};

	Object open (in string path) raises (NotFound);
interface EditorFactory : GNOME::FileFactory {

That would allow GNOME::File to have an empty file, which isn't what
I want, since that's supposed to do no editing whatsoever.
