Better to code bindings from C++ to C than invent a new ORB, code it and
test it from scratch...  ACE's TAO is optimized, tested, supported, and
free.  You can't get much better than that.

There are tons of C++ bindings for C libraries (GTK-- for example).  All
this is is a bridge from C to C++.  There is nothing wrong is going the
other way as well -- C++ to C.
