I was referring to overhead like:
a) writing the interface definition and dealing with ID strings
b) more code 
c) size of the "library"

I am quite sure the other implementations of DC are lighter in these
areas, though for some that may not be an issue. I was not considering
network bandwidth, but am glad to hear CORBA is efficient in that
respect.
