I'd like to remind people that corba is not the only way to go, as there
is also dco and especially MCOP (which was designed for realtime and
multimedia applications). While CORBA might indeed be the best choice, it
mustn't be choosen just because it has more letters ;->


(the author couldn't get corba to work reliably (timing constraints) so he
choose to implement something suited for data transfer).
