Sorry for not being clear. I have just finished rebuilding the kdebindings and
PyQt RPMs for Python 2.1 to try out the Python examples. They work fine so far.
What I meant was that the DCOP server AFAIK can currently only be written in
C++. I also couldn't find anything that describes the APIs that are exported
via DCOP, but I'd better ask for this in a KDE group.
