That's because there has been no descission taken that D-BUS is going to
replace anything or even be part of GNOME in the future. Lots of people
seems to want it to be part of GNOME but there has been no descission
taken from anywhere that it is going in.

I'm pretty sure that those involved in D-BUS development has waited with
announcing it until they have some code to back things up. No point in
discussing things that doesn't exist since that would only lead to "it
will never be stable, it will never work, ..."-kinda arguments which
doesn't help anyone.

Now they have code that works, it's not finished, it's not optimized,
it's not bug free but it's there and got a great deal of momentum. Lots
of people seems to be interested in it for various reasons.

Might it be that they think bonobo/CORBA is not the right technical
reason, that they think it's the right way to go in regards of better
interop with KDE (and others), that they just like the name, that they
don't know better, or whatever I don't know. But since lots of people
are really excited about it does at least in my eyes say that there are
something lacking in our current platform. (and by lacking I mean that
it can also be that what we do have is too complex, or too hard to work

*Please* be level headed about this discussion, otherwise it will just
be a long thread that takes us nowhere.
