digging down- it turns out that they have - not unexpectedly-
a full custom unique API, BUT they also have a bridge from that ( UNO)
to COM so it would seem doable to control OO to at least some extent.

I expect that the bridge was added on by some realist somewhere
in that crowd that decided to let folks actually use the interface
in a std environment. Obviously not from Sun. And like Shwan
I expect it all is Java-like.

undoubtedly.

I didn't dig too deep but didn't see any detailed docs.
