Sounds good for now. I am looking forward to have a look.

Great, I don't really know, but I think the CORBA 3 specs are mostly
about the CCM additions. So I guess that 2.6 is mostly the same as 3.0
for what I think you will you provide.

An IR that can load quickly is always nice.

Ok. I guess some of this can and will come along with time if it is
accepted in boost.
