Well, not *must* but implementing everything properly requires
something that feels like an ORB implementation. That's not an easy
thing to do... so one could use the existing CORBA support, but all
these layers are making everything very heavyweight, and we're not
even talking about the real useful stuff, it's just
intercommunnication...
