Maybe.  But how about making textobject a first class child of
mediaobject, and giving us a textdata element, analogous to imagedata?

Then we could write

        <textdata fileref="file.c">

and not have to have the current inlinegraphic hack (which will stop
working in DocBook 5.0 anyway).

Telephone line, $24.95 a month.  Software, free.  USENET transmission,
hundreds if not thousands of dollars.  Thinking before posting, priceless.
