However, various technologies can be used for some things that bonobo can do. DBus can for instance be used for low bandwidth IPC. However, the main usecase of bonobo, which is embedding one application in another (say mine-sweeper in gnumeric, or (slighly more useful) a dia diagram in gnumeric) just is not used all that much. So, the lack of a direct replacement is not a large problem. The few apps that require this can keep using bonobo. I don't know what the current plan for bonobo use in the panel is, but a replacement could probably use a simple wrapper around GtkPlug/GtkSocket if it needs out of process applets.
