ICE is used by XSM (X Session Management protocol) and DCOP. Comparing it with
CORBA is like comparing a wall with a house, it's not a matter of one being
better than the other, it's a matter of what matches better with your needs.
Although ICE is modular in the sense that you can hook it up with different
transport layers, it doesn't come with any secure transport layers so I
wouldn't recommend it for use over a network.
I would take a second look at XML-based RPC protocols, HTTP is quite simple
and you don't need a full fledged HTTP server in order to use it. It being
very popular probably also means that there is plenty of stuff out there
ready to use.
