It's good to admit that we don't have an ORB that works well.  We can
still code stuff in an object-oriented manner (and chuck it in a
library), so we can turn it into a CORBA object implementation when we
do get a good ORB.

The only thing CORBA buys you vs. a shared library is the ability for
your method to be called from more languages without having to hack
individual bindings.
