Can you explain the notion of "soft"?

As I undertand things you can build and deploy using the Instrument 
package - but to do anything with this you need an instument manager 
which talks to an instrument client. If code includes the instrument 
manager then currently that means a *hard* dependency on AltRMI. 
 Fortress has a hard dependency on Instrument Manager therefor it has a 
hard dependecy on AltRMI.

Is this correct or not?

Cheere, Steve.
