I don't doubt that the telecom sector produce a lot of paperwork      
within OMG :-)                                                        
(After working with implementations of telecom protocols for the last 
16 years I haven't seen a core telecom system using corba for external
                                                                      
communication. I have seen one using it for internal comms and that   
was probably not the wisest move...)                                  
                                                                      
Anyway, the point was that is a VERY large chunk of the OTP           
distribution and I have never used it.

> CORBA is widely used within telecom (Ericsson, Lucent, Siemens,
