AIUI, the intention is to at least make pyatspi compatible as far as possible.
However, I haven't tested any existing client libraries yet.
I rather started to write a new AT library in emacs23.

Not quite, a new gtk-2.0 module is provided which bridges to the new DBus
based registryd. I might be missing many bits of the picture still,
but a quick test of application behaviour shows that:
* This new module is not autoloaded by default yet.
With gtk apps like gedit, you can pass
and the application will show up in the DBus registryd.
* When using the same parameter for iceweasel, only a bare skeleton
of accessible objects appears. I guess something different has to be
done here to get the module loaded correctly?

Oh, great, I dodn't know that, I filed the RFP however.
