well, I've also been looking at Derek's proposal, and it's really GREAT.
And having a report server, as I've understood, is just a CORBA server
which will be activated when needed. For small applications, you just
have all the components on the same machine, and the user won't notice
any difference.

And having two kinds of reports (2 implementations) is IMO just a waste
of time.

I think we should adopt Derek's ideas. The only thing I don't agree is
to have this out of GDA. I think it should go to GDA, for not having to
add another dependency out of it.

that's a very good idea!
