A nice and powerful framework - with two strength problems: 1. It's only 32bit aware. You'll come in big trouble when running it in 64bit mode. I want to use it in a program communicating with a KEXT, which in turn can run only in 64bit mode on MacOSX 10.8. So I cannot use it for this reason. 2. Bad implementation to access remote CORBA typecodes. This disables access f.e. to CORBA TradingService.
