Onthe other hand, language binding to a large variety of languages for CORBA exist
now, it is well known and understood technology while d-bus is for the most part
really a ugly IPC hack. Even if CORBA is not the appropriate ipc mrthof for some
case, that still doesn't mean inventing yet another ipc protocol makes any kind of
sence. Plenty already do exist, and there is complete lack of evidence the world
needs a new one.
