okay, sorry.

I would however encourage you to implement the client side as full OO as 
GNOME is already moving in the direction of making documents first class 

I also see the API as being much more pleasant with objects. EG take a 
document object it might have methods load/save/cancel associated with 
itself and signals/events for Document_Loaded and Document_Saved which 
means you can avoid exposing a nasty async API and keep everything KISS.
