True, I did not consider that.

However, we must keep in mind that at some point CORBA linking may become
illegal for the GPL.  If we choose the GPL, we can specifically permit CORBA
linking for certain cases.  Other cases could then be left illegal for non-GPL
programs (3rd party BL, for example).  But, do we want to wait?
