	There may well be problems with the IR, but Owen assures me IIRC
that parsing the idl is a rather quicker method than using the IR ( and
this would seem to be obvious over a network connection ) and that ORBit
perl is sticking with it. Either way, I tend to think the flexibility of
the IR approach is far greater.
