No, what I wanted to say is that it would be good in the block
diagram to note that the communications in this place uses
CORBA. It's just adding a few words and OTOH saves a lot of time
poking through the code.

So that means BL and PL also communicate using CORBA, right ? If
so, it would come in handy if that were noted in the diagram as
well - particularly because that is new. In older docs it was
written that BL and PL communicate over direct library calls.
