Yeah. I'm starting to suspect that Don kept piling crap into COM until
even he didn't understand it, and then said "screw that, let's start again
with .NET", hence all the MarshalByRefObject stuff there. Side-note:
bizarrely due to HTTP being a tier-1 RPC channel in .NET there's no way to
know if a .NET remoting connection drops without pinging it yourself.
Now they're scrapping that and working on "Indigo". Are Microsoft forever
doomed to reinvent DCOM over and over?
