GOAD and OAF should both function the same way - it is just that people
are not yet using gnome-libs HEAD with its OAF hooks, and the usage of OAF
with gnome-libs 1.2 (e.g. Nautilus) is totally broken WRT network

The reason remote CORBA is not working for people is because:
. They are using ORBit 0.5.3 and haven't turned on TCP/IP (I wish all the
overparanoid security whiners would show up and start helping people make
things work, now that they've caused things to come to this...)
. They haven't synchronized the /tmp/orbit-username/cookie file between
the two systems (must restart GNOME after doing this to make things work).
. Their networking is not set up to allow connections initiated from one
computer to reach the other computer (e.g. a firewall in between).
