Is the COM support a leftover from Distributed OLE stuff in OpenStep?

    My feeling is that Core Foundation's COM is more recent and is there to support the Core Foundation Plug-Ins only. The Core Foundation COM support is pretty basic. I'd imagine that you'd have been given much more with D'OLE's COM e.g. CoCreateInstance and an API naming scheme much more in line with Microsoft.
