	The best people to ask are the mono folk I think.

	Ultimately, since CORBA is connection based, and bi-directional and
SOAP is design-strangled by the limitations of an http:// like model,
it's likely you'd need to write a mapping wrapper to provide a .Net API.

	It's possible you could use Mono to do that,
