I'm glad to say that the above is not true. orb.string_to_object()
will now be able to accept URLs:

orb  = CORBA.ORB_init()
obj  = orb.string_to_object("corbaloc::foo.example.com:1234/MyTestObj")
test = obj._narrow(Example.Test)

if test is not None:
    # Use the test object

The OMG isn't quite so hopeless after all.
