I can have a look at it next week. I will spend the next few days
studing the Abi event code in any case. I think it will be very easy to
turn the gnome-version of abi into a bonobo control so that it can be
scripted via remote applications. I will roll most of the control code
into an XP layer so that at least the Windows hackers can do ActiveX
scripting. I guess other platforms might have something similar. If so
that could use it too.
