One thing you may not yet know is that Python absolutely rocks for
CORBA - seeing how elegant CORBA can be is one of the reasons I
decided to check out Python in the first place. OmniORB is the ORB I
would check out first if I were you...

Well, you should just try implementing it in Python. Try something
like PythonCard + OmniORB combo. If you can get it done in 2 days, you
will know that you have a winner in your hands :-).

Advantages: maintainability and, deriving from that,
flexibility/modifiability. You are much more likely to even consider
modifying an existing Py program than a C++ program. C++ programs are
best left alone once they reach something resembling a functional
