I've seen a number of projects over the years that were trying to hook 
up a CORBA orb to Ruby ...

I'd really like to see that happen ...

I mean, take Orbit2 for instance, they provide C, C++, & Python bindings 
...
And, there are others, that have done the exact same ...

I very much need access to a corba object network from my Ruby code ( 
I'm supporting some legacy apps that aren't going to get rewritten ) ...

I know I can, if I take a lot of time, write the Ruby->Orbit2 ( or which 
every orb people want to bind... ) binding myself ... But, it's not my 
forte.  There are a LOT of people out there that have done work on 
implementing bindings, and I see this as something that is definately a 
+ for people that are trying to use Ruby as that enterprise glue.

I know a lot of people are all about SOA and REST/SOAP etc ... but, 
there are apps out there that just AREN'T coded that way ....

Anyways, if I can get some guidance, I'd very much appreciate it ... I 
kinda need it and feel y'all are the best people to ask.

Let me know what you think / how you feel.

Ciao for now.
