Oh fine -- get me in trouble with the students! :-)  (You should hear the
grief I'm getting over in the Squeakers list!)

More seriously: If you can define some specific tasks that you need to get
CORBA support in Squeak, I can:
- Consider them for class assignments (if they're pedagogically useful, and
you can use 100 different implementations :-)
- Suggest them as extra credit assignments for my class
- Post them on my list of project suggestions.  We have a requirement for
undergraduate design/research projects, and that's the source for some
wonderful things like Ross Philipson's PWS Admin utility.
- Ask if any of the Georgia Tech Squeakers wants to take on the task.

There is interest among the students here for CORBA support in Squeak --
it's one of the more common questions I get from students who want to use
Squeak in their co-op jobs.
