Good news !

Sure. I certainly don't mind them doing a wrapper or don't want to
discourage use of IBPP in any way (check my sig) :-)

I just thought that at first there might be some more direct paths for
VB programmers than writing glue code to a C++ class library.

That's one of the reasons there is no COM version of IBPP library (for
now at least), because it looked more valuable (my very own feeling
without VB experience) to move on things like the .net provider.
