I won't flood you about other free ORBs.

Instead I'll continue to challenge the OLE2 model. I'm still under the
impression that OLE2 is targeted toward helping large, Microsoft-scale
applications talk to each other.

I'm quite willing to be talked out of that impression, but I think it's
quite important that an document object model be selected that is geared
for smaller scale applications to interoperate. Because of the distri-
buted nature of Linux development, allowing small pieces to work
together to build a large-scale application is particularly appropriate.

I'm not meaning to bring up an OpenDoc/OLE war, because I don't think
it has to be that way. But I think scale issues are essential here.
