I'd have to agree that having a Corba interface in Delphi would be a
great thing.  COM is fine but for non Microsoft servers (or Clients)
it's just about impossible.  Corba is stable and usable, What I haven't
seen from any of the ORB vendors is a good IDE to improve development
time.  adding Corba support to the Delphi (and C++Builder) IDEs would be
a huge step forward for the community, and I think that Borland would
find lots of developers with deep pockets for such support.
