The day I wrote a CORBA method intercepter in 8 lines of code using
__getattr__ to catch 2 or 3 interesting method calls out of 20 or 30
defined in the IDL. The interesting methods I handled, and the rest I
just forwarded to the remote CORBA object. Unfortunately, the client
expected this to be an expensive job, and I was only able to bill him
for 1/2 an hour (I had to test the code in addition to writing it).
