Not really.  Bonobo is all about simplifying this kind of setups.

That is exactly the vision, but using plain CORBA interfaces is not as
powerful as agreeing on a number of things, like the factory interface
and the Bonobo::Unknown interface.  

And once you accept that those interfaces are useful, you might as
well save time, and use Bonobo to implement them.
