I've been working on this, but so far I am stuck with trying to
compile the orbitcpp. The latest version of it that I can locate is
dated back on 2004 and the C++ part compiles fine, but then I keep
getting errors about missing backend libraries for the idl-compiler.
I could try to tackle the Java portion, if that would be sufficient,
but I'd rather try to track down either an updated version of the
orbitcpp or some sort of patch for Mac.
Is the Java client/server portion sufficient, or does the C++ part
need to be done as well?
