If this forum is only for the user features in the Mozilla Communicator, I apologize for posting about a programmer feature.

I would like to see XP-COM to support many programming languages including standard, open, and proprietary ones.

There is so much code out there written in so many different languages. It would be great to connect Mozilla to legacy code. When I say 'legacy', I don't mean mainframes running old COBOL programs, but any production program that 'works' no matter what language, development tools, language, operating system, or archietecture it was written. COM is too tight with Microsoft Winddows and CORBA is too complicated. XP-COM used in the Mozila Communicator is the answer.
