By 'CORBA details', I meant the detail of using CORBA at all.  The A11Y
framework is one of the last users of CORBA on the desktop, and there
has been interest in moving AT-SPI to a more maintainable technology
like D-Bus in the past.  

It seems I missed the "many worlds" plan; how do you plan on supporting
both CORBA and D-Bus clients at the same time here?
