I'll let people at the OMG know that ORBit supports the recommendations in
the C RTF since they made sence to the ORB implementers.
The Issues that people are bringing up really need to be captured in a
document or something that I can send to people at the OMG.
Is someone going to volunteer to collect the information into a document?
I can make sure the correct people at the OMG are made
aware of the information.

The abstracted IO layer sounds usefull. As for my progress on getting
onto LynxOS. I'm stuck with the "gettext" stuff. I haven't quite figured
how to get gettext to configure for a target nicely. (I'll chalk up some
the trouble to my inexperience in customizing the Autoconf stuff)
I should look at ORBit2 and see if it is more friendly to embedded systems.
I've had some thoughts about gettext... At least for an embedded system, I
to be less dependent on a package that seems to require additional setup
configuration just to read command lines. I'm even considering if I could
out the gettext dependencies.... Any thoughts? Especially since when the
system is deployed, it won't care about having internationalized command
a non-embedded system.

This needs fixing - it's totaly useless. Surely they can get a
SuperJanet connection or somesuch - it's a charity no ?

Well - the changes are so small that I think we support them
already; and most are just impl. details that we happened to choose the
new standard way anyway it seems :-) any->_value = (char **) for strings

Hmm - I think we need to do no work - that's why I'm happy.

I would recoomend using ORBit2 - not only is the project
drasticaly re-structured, but hacking is easier, we can't really touch
ORBit-stable currently, it has a reduced memory footprint, abstracted IO
layer, is far more generic and powerful etc. etc. :-)
