Well, I want a general idea of interfaces with defined types for 
published objects ("interface Foo := I have a method foo that returns an 
integer and accepts two args, an integer and an object implementing 
interface Bar"). Basically IDL, when you get down to it :)

Introspection would be part of this, as would auto-generation of docs.
