Hi Julien,

	This looks nice ! thanks for that :-) should make the IDL and the
generated headers much more readable. Having said that things like:
-#ifndef __com_sun_star_uno_XInterface_idl__ 
 #include <com/sun/star/uno/XInterface.idl> 
-#ifndef __com_sun_star_beans_PropertyState_idl__ 
 #include <com/sun/star/beans/PropertyState.idl> 

	Will stick around with lots of pointless whitespace line between the
#includes which is a tad sad :-) [ though way better than before ].

	Good isn't it ;-) just think - we compile all that information into the
worlds-worst structured storage format and then fool around inside that
on each launch; and we do that for a load of interfaces that no-one in
their right mind would use from a scripting language, and shouldn't be
published either IMHO. Our UNO foo really needs some love -
particularly, making it possible to use UNO without all that type
information kicking around would be great.

	I suggest learning some perl :-) All $programming $languages{are}
{ much alike; } so s/fret/not/ - it'll only take a minute to test & get
what you want (surely) ? ;->
