+       * standards.texi (Graphical Interfaces): Recommend D-Bus
+       rather than CORBA, for GNOME and use from other programs in general.
+       Suggestion from Andy Wingo.

        * standards.texi (--version): No more GPL/Guile; the Guile exception
        was only used in old releases (that didn't use this --version output).
        These days, Guile is under the LGPL, no special exceptions.
