Ok, that's fine. (although it should be a nightmare maintainance-wise
&& too many ifdefs are evil).

Is there any documentation or other resources describing the Emacs
GUI API (or the source is my friend ? ;-)).

Now, provided that you have not commented on the general "text editor
interface api", should I assume that you agree with this approach ?
If you do, I can begin (during the easter holiday probably)
designing a first draft of the api... (I would appreciate a link to
the text editor GNOME CORBA interfaces).

Thank you,
