COM has enough problems still to prevent a lot of big apps
from installing, I think.   I'd like to see that more solid
before we declare 1.0.

How about msvcr80 / sxs support?  There seem to be a
number of office apps that need that feature now.
(Anything 2007-ish from Microsoft, probably.)
I haven't been following it to see what's up there, but
I do know I bump into apps that don't work yet because of it.

Does .net support count?   About ten apps in Bugzilla
don't install because of that, including some fairly
big-name ones.  Don't know if any of them are office apps
offhand, though.
