I'm not sure what you're saying here. We don't have an existing CORBA 
framework. We have DCOP and if you want to ask why not use CORBA then I 
want to ask you why don't you use DCOP? It's a rhetoric question of 
course that in practice would lead to months of flamewars and all I 
want to say is that GNOME is not the only recipient of DBus and you 
have to look at the whole picture when considering why a particular 
technology hasn't been used.


Whatever kind of look you were going for, you missed.
