That's been one of my biggest gripes wrt developing sites.  Nobody seems to 
want to use (say) scripting languages as anything more than glue between 
other server-side componants.  While I understand the speed and 
encapsulation arguments for COM, I find that in practice these objects are 
poorly documented if at all.

I much prefer to be able to see the code in my IDE instead of having to go 
through the edit->compile->register->test cycle.

Something I don't know - how difficult is it to protect against unwanted side 
effects with COM?
