I agree. This has been planned for a long time. We've been waiting
for an ORB.
Perhaps ORBit is finally finished enough that we can start putting
CORBA-based code into libgnomeui.
I don't think the CORBA event service is the appropriate service to

It's always been the plan that Gnome will use CORBA to provide
systemwide application integration.
I doubt people care how things work, provided that they do. To put
this another way: will installing one more library really make the
difference? One program I looked at ("session-properties" -- by no
means an unusual program) already uses 19 libraries. I doubt 20 is
the magic point at which users revolt :-) (Ok, ok, only 8 of those are
"nonstandard", which roughly means "name matches libg*")
