omniORB can use Gnome's authentication mechanism. Just set the
OMNIORB_PRINCIPAL environment variable to the Gnome cookie string. You
can find that by running "xprop -root GNOME_SESSION_CORBA_COOKIE".

Of course that doesn't help if you're using a different ORB, but Piper
seems to be using omniORB.
