I thought the consensus was that CORBA is the necessary evil we chose because 
there is already an implementation. Even with all the "powerful performance 
enhancement" CORBA is still a magnitute slower than most other IPC 

I'm currently fighting hard to sell our product managers the idea that we have 
to support a technology which most other vendors abandoned and most of our 
programmers don't understand even with training (provided they manage to 
install it successfully).

Sorry if that sounded a bit harsh but I think that pro-only CORBA messages are 
a bit counter-productive.
