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
use, however.

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*")
