Hi, I've been holding onto this idea for a while, however, has the idea of
creating a CORBA subset, like ActiveX is a subset of COM, to be used to
call native applications that can be embedded into browsers? for example,
lets say I want to watch the latest news however, they only have Windows
Media, would it be possible to create a plugin architecture using CORBA so
that an appropriate player is loaded *in* the browser window, aka,
application embedded into the browser window as with the case of Internet
Explorer and Windows Media Player.
