        Sounds like great work :-) wow.

        Fair comments in fact :-) I think we stripped the 'backend'
capability in it's shlib form from orbit-idl in the last revision.

        I'd be most interested to see the ORBitC++ code that you have, and
I'm sure Mark and I would be happy to help port it to ORBit2 - if it's
merely a matter of an IDL compiler backend - that's something we could
trivialy fold back into ORBit2 itself in fact - since it would add no new
