If you are doing this, you should use multithreading or something in the
same address space.

The typical CORBA request sends comparatively little data.

The main problem with implementing a shared memory transport is the
complexity involved. You have to have at least one shared memory segment
for each client you connect to, you have worry about security (how do you
allow connections between processes running as different users?), you have
to worry about signalling the other end through another mechanism that the
data is in the shm segment waiting to be processed, etc. etc.
