While we're at it:

I'm not exactly sure where the AT-SPI/D-Bus work stands.  My 
understanding about Mark's work is that he'll be ramping down the pure 
AT-SPI/D-Bus work in March and ramping up on ATK support in KDE/Qt.

My assumption, which can be clarified by Mark, is that Mark was funded 
primarily to get this stuff going for the purposes of supporting 
automated testing across multiple desktop solutions (e.g., GNOME and 
KDE).  While we hope that this means it will be sufficient for use by 
assistive technologies, I'm not sure this is guaranteed.

What we need to do is find a 'catcher' for the AT-SPI/D-Bus work to 
test/verify that it can supplant the AT-SPI/CORBA work for the purposes 
of assistive technologies.
