Subsets are dangerous unless we can make sure we actually interoperate,
which is possible. Least of all there is value in atleast writing the
Tomcat side of the connector/adapter using the JavaIDL ORB in JDK (1.2).

We can use the GIOP message format, CDR encoding and add the *IOR* format.
That would make it interoperable.

For this, there's lots of places we can steal code from :-)
