One other interesting benifit would be in the case of bonobo/oaf. When
you login, OAF can post its Object Directory IOR onto the server along
with every other logged in account. OAF can then murge all the OD's with
its own. What will this alow?

I think that this won't be useful without extensions to bonobo that monitors
how many instances of components are instantiated currently (and that
disallows to use a component if the number of instances is bigger than some
number). It's because most bonobo components that will not be available on
each computer will be commercial ones, and most probably the licenses for them
won't allow to run more than 1 instance of the component (or multi-user
license would have to be acquired).


1. One of the reasons I no longer use MS products is to escape the licensing BS. 2. How long do you think it will be before there is a nice patch removing this functionality on Freshmeat?
