	This is wonderful news; in which case the libgnome module code can
be relegated to poking at-bridge when neccessary to start / stop the
accessibility support - and the whole thing becomes rather more trivial.

	Great - it's good to test this; does this involve cut and paste of
eg. gailwidget ? - or perhaps that is what these new APIs are designed to
avoid ?

	Sounds fine from an API review POV - a minor addition.

	Is this a cut and paste of AtkObjectFactory ? with a simple sed
AtkObject/GObject - in which case it might be better simply to make the
AtkObjectFactory produce GObjects instead (?).

	Either way - this doesn't sound like an API review problem either
- however, if/when you add the APIs can you immediately do a package
release to avoid problems for people building from packages.
