I haven't looked at the DCOPObject stuff very much, but it shouldn't be too 
much of a problem (famous last words). Marshalling/demarshalling is the hard 
part - very ugly in Python, very easy in C++.

You can use Python strings as QByteArrays, but much beyond a single int or a 
real char string that's pretty difficult.
