Ah, I see. If you are definitely going to work on it, then maybe Rob and
myself should create a wiki page with all the work that needs to be done.

At the moment much work remains to be done. For instance:

 * Make the RPC runtime compatible with Microsofts marshalling format/DCE
 * Possibly implement the necessary parts of widl
 * Implement the OXID resolver, a proper endpoint mapper, maybe a proper
 * Implement complex/simple pinging
 * Maybe implement IRemoteActivation/ISystemActivator

You may wish to work with or contract CodeWeavers to help you with this

thanks -mike
