IMO, the AT-SPI Python bindings are the AT-SPI IDL itself.  That is,  
one can speak "pure" AT-SPI IDL via PyBonobo, which is something I  
prefer.  In Orca, we try to restrict this to a single python module  
as much as possible, but I think there would still be a significant  
setback if the use of IDL were dropped.
