This isn't really a re-invention of either -- just a very small library that
does something similar to what both do -- without all the baggage. COM is a
Windows only option, for example. Both are big frameworks with gobs of stuff
not needed to load a dll and call a function. So I don't see this as a
reinvention any more than serialization is a reinvention of the MS
Boost list run by bdawes at acm.org, gregod at cs.rpi.edu, cpdaniel at pacbell.net, john at johnmaddock.co.uk
