Ok, sounds good to me.  One thing that might be useful, however, 
would be to consider unifying the CORBA interfaces: for example, 
there's no reason why we can't have a GNOME::Mail interface and move 
my code to GNOME::Mail::Check; that way we can potentially have a 
unified library at some point.  (There could also be 
GNOME::Mail::Fetch (perhaps as a CORBA binding for fetchmail), or 
GNOME::Mail::Read for a real mail-reading library...)

What do the CORBA experts think about this?  Is that a good idea, and 
is it even feasible or useful?  If we're going to change the 
namespace, I'd like to do it sooner, rather than later, while my code 
is still very "pre-stable." :)
