Ok, upon reviewing the documentation, I was way off before. However, one
could still contain all of the ORBit code within the C stubs, and have
only the Embeddable, Container, View, ViewFrame, ClientSite, etc object
interfaces exposed in Python. So, ORBit bindings would not be necessary,
and it would make components/containers pretty easy to write in Python.

Anyone know if James Henstridge has started/implemented any of the bonobo
