sadly, in retrospect, it would have turned out to be a huge mistake.
i'm sorry to have to be the bearer of bad news, that i have been
unable to find *any* major libre software team with the intelligence
and resources to comprehend the strategic importance of DCOM.

historically, it is not a coincidence that there is a correlation
between microsoff's massive success (and that they used COM) and
Apple's massive success (and that they used Objective-J, Objective-C
and Objective-M), where each of those had - has - the same co-class
capability of COM actually built-in to the *compilers*, providing all
and any binaries right across the board with the exact same run-time
