Further, since CORBA deals with remote objects etc, it requires
serialization that is cross platform. e.g. Platform A must always be able
to correctly deserialize messages that were serialized by platform B, for
all platforms A and B. I believe this not to be the case for
Boost.Serialization, but Sohail would clearly know the answer to this.
