Okay, well if anyone's interested in having a look, the code is in
inkscape/src/bonobo. There's a dozen files totaling around 1000 lines.
As a start it'd be nice to know if it compiles with g++.
Longer term, this may be something we look when developing the plugin
system; if we can make Bonobo wrappers that conform to our plugin API
then it should be straightforward to implement and maintain.
