Are you sure?, you ought to think there are a lot of points of view.
	I am sure that bonobo is really powerful and important in GNOME proyect
-because GNOME needs embedable objects ("embeddables") in order to reuse
efforts, but whole GNOME is not "embeddables"-, however it has not a role out
of "embeddables" -I think this, but I could be wrong-.

I am in aggreement, but agreeing on a number of things is in order to resolve
aggreed problems, like problem that bonobo solves (managing "embeddables") -in
this sentence there is a lot of redundancy of "aggree" :)-.
	I remember that defining "Desktop::Editor", "Desktop::Text-viewer", ... was a
good and SPECIFIC idea in GNOME in order to access cualified applications.

Perhaps if would exist all components that I need. Now there are applications
that I need but not objects. Then you can say, "well, you can code these
components", but I have not all time that I want and I need to learning and
