Nothing more, nothing less, than what we of course both know about COM - nothing to really worry about when well done, which I'm sure it is.
So that was just a friendly "clin d'oeil" (in one of the french meaning of this expression, which probably doesn't translate correctly in "a wink" in english). Hence the ;-) Useless post by me, indeed.

What source or text should I read to get a picture of the effective implementation?
The thin C++ interface IBPP over the old C API has been used in much more projects than I ever thought it could. So it'll be useful to plan well in advance for FB3. Ideally IBPP should shrink to the point of maybe not existing at all. Maybe as a super slim compatibility interface for code not wanting to move on from IBPP to FB native (object-oriented) API.

Should start a distinct discussion thread I think. May be postponed when you have time. No hurry in this.
Thanks !
