sounds like a nice little project!

Yup -- for corba -- look at omniORB (it has python bindings).  I thought
fnorb was the ORB to use, but it isn't -- it's been dead for a while 
now -- DSTC won't open source it and there's noone at DSTC to maintain 
it.  But you've probably already looked at this.

And with DCOM, we have our very own Mark Hammond who lives in Melbourne
(and wrote the MCG scoreboard in python and another language).  Mark
is the man who does most of the Windows specific stuff for Python.
