Oh, I think it's an excellent idea!   To develop robust,
consistent apps, you need a powerful, easy-to-use set of tools. 
A solid desktop environment is a good first step; an IDE is the
next logical progression.  Some kind of higher-level application
framework should probably follow (e.g. Microsoft's MFC or
Borland's OWL).  I think maybe this final step will manifest
itself in GNOME as a CORBA component infrastructure, rather than
as a code library like MFC/OWL.  (Thoughts, anyone?)

Granted, I'm pretty new to CORBA, but I would still like to help
out.  Let me know what I can do...
