Outside of mathematics, programmers are moving rapidly toward
component architectures based on COM, CORBA, and Java Beans (all of
which are similar).  For mathematical systems WRI has Mathematica
Link, which at least puts them on the leading edge in this specialized
marketplace.  However, it seems to me to be another example of a
needlessly proprietary interface.  I'm a relative newbie to COM
myself, but it doesn't on the face of it look like it would be very
difficult for the good folks at WRI to adapt what they have to allow
the Mathematica front ends and kernels to be COM, CORBA, or Bean
components and to allow interaction with foreign components.

Anybody at Wolfram want to comment on the feasibility/advisability of
