Subject Re: Donation of a CORBA Orb

I'm sorry Jeff.  It is a good idea to solicit ideas here.

What I was thinking was to start it off inside Geronimo.  As it's 
popularity grew, we could transition it to a sub-project; I don't think 
sub-projects are evil.  When it becomes a wildly popular project, we can 
spin it out as a TLP.
