Only programs that use bonobo-conf, since corba_any_to_string() is part
of bonobo_conf.

But yes, you are right and the two solutions are functional equivalent.
You consider the whole thing as "syntactic sugar", and you think the most
important thing is to simply provide a working solution. IMO there are
some more criteria's to rate the quality of software, so even "syntactic
sugar" counts (for me).
