fnorb was the first one i used, then i found it had died
and i wasn't allowed to fix bugs in it because of the 
licensing.  BUT!! they've just put it on sourceforge and
resurrected it and given it a better license and people
are working on making it work in python 2.x and getting
rid of the C code (which is unneccesary, even for performance)

it's a hard one.  omniORB is /fast/.  i think it's one of
the fastest ORBs out there.  omniORB has been more actively
developed over the past year or two, so i'd have to recommend
omniORBpy until fnorb makes it's next release or two.

(note that omniorb supports Python2.x but fnorb doesn't, yet)

but when fnorb gets going again, it'll be pure python, which
has the associated benefits.
