Stefan,
	I should have phrased it better, rather than cross platform support in terms 
of KDE/Gnome on Solaris, HP-UX etc etc, I meant I suppose 'common object 
definitions' wherby an application written for GNOME can still utilise 
clipboard/drag and drop/OLE functions from within KDE and vice versa.
