I've joined the gdome mailing list and sent email to author of the white
papers. After my DSL line is installed today, I'll be able to grab
whatever gdome source is available. gdome looks pretty cool, and I think
we can make it perfect for Loci. We'll need Python bindings for ORBit, so
I'll look into that also. Also, I'm going to implement a gdome interface
over tcp/ip, so not all tools will need to be CORBA apps (which will make
the remote tool development easier [just some minor scripting]).
