Hmm, lemme have some of that crack...

Ron was asking about being able to count on a particular interface
remaining the same - i.e. how we solved the problem of interface
versioning (answer: we don't). OAF has nothing to do with this at all.

OAFIID's have nothing to do with interfaces - they are unique identifiers
for implementations (OAF Implementation IDentifier).

As far as repo id's and OAF go, you can run a query to find all the
objects that advertise their implemention of a specified interface.
