I've done some interoperability testing with TAO and JacORB, so I don't
expect too many problems.

It's pretty close to clean CORBA 2.5. I've got a handful of things to
doublecheck or fix for CORBA 2.6 compliance.

I implement the full DII and DSI, but I haven't written an IR yet. My
plan for an IR is to implement another IDL compiler backend that outputs
data files that can be bulk imported into the IR.

I support the Messaging QoS policies, but nothing from RT yet. I don't
intent to promote this as an RT ORB, but there are still features of the
RT spec that are useful for a "normal" ORB (thread pools, priorities, etc).
