[Mono-list] Remoting CORBA support

I do plan to incorporate server-side support once I get some of the more
basic issues resolved.  I am reluctant to add server-side support until =
take steps to make Remoting.Corba more robust in the face of buggy or
malicious CORBA clients.

Regarding the connection-reuse issue: can you be more specific about how
Gnome "authenticates bits based on the connection"?  Does this mechanism =
standard CORBA mechanisms, or is it something proprietary to Gnome?
