In fact the OLE/DCOM work Ove did has been licensed back to ReWind under
the X11 license, and I have a partial merge sitting on my hard disk. It
worked well enough for the app I ported while at QinetiQ which did some
rather advanced things with COM, but is not of merge quality yet.

Doing a proper merge though is really not that easy, in particular Ove
and Marcus have duplicated quite a bit of work, and figuring out the
correct "seams" to merge along is tricky.

At some point I need to make it build again, and send in a big patch
like Ove did for me, so that if somebody else feels like doing a better
job they can do.
