Just in case, backward compatibility is tested eventually with
"real-life" WSH apps.

Here is one that queries the OLE interfaces of a given COM class and
renders them such that one can create nice printouts of them. If you
check the "compact" mode than you get a reference card kind of
rendering. Also, do not overlook the option to have all registry defined
COM classes listed (and then just point to any, and if it's an OLE one,
then the rendering of it takes place.

The package contains a Rexx program that one may use to interrogate a
COM object at runtime, in case one got an OLE object as a result of a
method invocation and wishes to learn about its interfaces.

Here's the URL: <http://wi.wu-wien.ac.at/rgf/rexx/orx15/readme.html>.
There are two packages one needs to download:

    * <http://wi.wu-wien.ac.at/rgf/rexx/orx08/orx8%5f200505%2ezip>:
      contains some utilities rgf_ole_info needs
    * <http://wi.wu-wien.ac.at/rgf/rexx/orx15/rgf_oleinfo.zip>: the
      package, including the main application, named "rgf_oleinfo.hta"
      ("hta" means "HTML application" and is an MSIE apps running with
      the credentials of the user).

It probably makes a good (and complex enough) test case for a real world
WSH app.
