Hi.. sorry, I completely didn't think of it (as with so many other things
this last week, which has been a complete disaster but anyway..).

It's still very preliminary at the moment.  My understanding is that it's
not "standard" but wishes eventually to be an alternate [VB-compatible]
standard.  Scripting already exists for Gnome but I understand the plan is
to allow VB scripting for apps similar to that which exists for the Other
office suite.  I'll mail the gb list and enquire further.

Of course there are no packages in Debian which use Gnome Basic either,
since this is its first packaging.
