The org/apache/geronimo/InteropServer relates to the code in the 
geronimo interop module, which we aren't using at the moment.  The 
actual CORBA support is entirely in openejb and uses the Sun orb.

I think it would probably be appropriate to put the openejb corba 
support in a separate corba module but it is most likely to be a 
separate openejb corba module.  At that time making it optional seems 
reasonable.  I doubt this will happen before 1.0

As noted above, we aren't using it for anything.  The generated code 
(using the IDL compiler) is now in a spec module.
