There is no way I know of to compile IDL for ActiveX/OLE controls.
an IDL compiler is needed for serious jobs. Even UNIX has this for RPC & DCE's IDL for defining interfaces.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa367091%28v=VS.85%29.aspx
Microsoft Interface Definition Language is practically the same as the UNIX IDL (I don't see how it's different, but I didn't look at the specs).
is this possible?

    of course, you might also need some way to digitally sign activex controls as well.
