Use the DII, send the created request with CORBA_request_send() and
periodically attempt to collect the response with
CORBA_Request_get_response() function with the CORBA_RESP_NO_WAIT flag
set. This is similar to using select on a fd: if the response is ready,
the function will return it, otherwise it will throw an exception and
you will be able to do other things, like check for timeout and decide
not wait for the response again...
