[erlang-questions] oe_obj? (& mailing list issues)

Hi, I'm playing around with IC and the c_client backend.

All the generated stubs seem to want an "oe_obj" parameter of the type of 
my interface (which is typedef'd to CORBA_Object). My assumption is that 
this is analogous to the OE_THIS parameter required by the stubs generated 
by the erl_genserver backend (i.e. it's the gen_server's PID), but:

1) I see no function (analogous to oe_create/0,1,2) capable of generating 
such a value, unless I explicitly declare one in another interface (which 
of course has the same problem), and

2) this value seems to be unused by all the generated code.

The c_client example seems to pass in NULL for this argument, instead 
obtaining the PID manually and storing it manually in the CORBA_Environment 
structure. This seems... odd.

What am I missing? Why does oe_obj not do what I expect?


P.S.: I tried e-mailing to erlang-questions@REDACTED directly (after 
signing up), but my message has been "awaiting moderator approval" for 
several days now.  What's going on?  (I'm using Google Groups for the time
