That's unwelcome talk around here. I advocated using IDL for the official SAX definition a while back, but no-one seemed to deem it worth considering. Of course, we've fallen into exactly the sort of trap that language-specific interface definition causes: people translating to another language all do it differently, and the whole set of discussions must reiterate for language Y. The Python/XML group recently hashed out details of of a Python/DOM binding. Because there is a developed Python/CORBA binding, we knew exactly how to model several key components of the interface. Note that this does not involve taking up _any_ of CORBA's baggage except for interface definition, for which IDL does a brilliant job. -- Uche Ogbuji FourThought LLC, IT Consultants uche.ogbuji@f...
