It worked with ORBit0, and this tuff hasn't changed *that*
significantly since then - unless I'm missing something.

Heh :-) I actually remember being the one suggesting it, but
either way, I was fully behind it. I even had stranger ideas of having
the scripting bindings in there too. At the time, I was just very,
very concerned that freezing down these parts of the ORB would
seriously hinder us from being able to make future improvements to the
core. IMHO, this is partly why ORBit0 and ORBit HEAD development
ground to a halt. Anyway, in hindsight explicitly stating that these
parts of the ORB are internal and are not frozen seems to be enough
