I hope so. That is the entire idea. It is funny that C# and IL supports
such an easy access to this data via relection. Ada supports it via
ASIS. Other languages as well. Why not pull all this information into
common format.

Also this ties into the Corba Meta-data / Interface repository. Please
check out this paper :
Mico Also supports interface repository.

Ok, this looks like a good start. How does it relate to the DGMX? 

Also, what is the way to query the interface of a plugin?
Where can i get that?
