heh, you don't really believe what you're saying are you? You just said 
that we should adopt ORBit2 with GObject, GModule and linc because it 
uses CORBA... 
Sorry, I won't be a part of this discussion, you are of course free to 
work on that solution just as DBus developers are free to work on 
theirs. You can be sure that if you actually do make it work, we will 
judge it on the base of its technical merits only, but if you think 
that I, or most probably any other KDE developer, will work on adopting 
ORBit2 in KDE then I'm sorry but you're up for a rude awakening. 
We judge software based on its technical merits only. The fact that A is 
a standard and project B uses it and project C optimized the hell of it 
don't make a damn difference if solution D is simply overly better. 
Sure, we are willing to stretch and work on something that would solve 
some problem, in this case global ipc, but we are simply not going to 
adopt core GNOME technologies to KDE to achieve that (in the same way 
that you're unwilling to do the opposite)
