Ah, yes, that was originally the holy grail of ILU, which, if I recall
correctly, did evolve basically into a CORBA solution eventually.  At
any rate, Corba surely has the potential to help (better than COM does
on Windows, for this purpose), assuming you can find acceptable brokers
for your purposes (Corba specifies language bindings for a bazillion
languages, but any given broker may not offer _all_, I believe...).
