It would be cool if you could do this up as a complete runnable
Erlang<->Java example program!

I did that a few years ago, but I think it should be nicer now with
e.g. the epmd-style naming that CORBA has adopted. Before that, it
really *was* ugly -- you had to bootstrap communication by copying
some opaque object reference onto a webserver or something :-). The
devil was in those small details.

BTW, is there anything like process links and monitor_node in CORBA
these days?

Cheers,
Luke
