	Correct me if I'm wrong, but as soon as we start doing bridging - which
is necessary for logging - then instead of passing C++ object handles
around which will dynamic_cast<> properly, we end up with some bridge
object in the middle instead, and all instances of dynamic_cast break -
is that right ? :-)

	Well - so - my wonder was whether we could create something much
lighter, that does XTunnel's job - built into the UNO core code itself,
and bypassing such bridges (with some suitable simple, pleasant and
readable syntax as dynamic_cast<>).

	;-) well - as you like. IMHO it makes sense writing these things up in
some detail for people new to the project.

	All the best,
