Dan George pointed out in a post a while back that CORBA could even be used 
for the stream data too using the A/V Streams CORBAdomain. That will let 
you carry the stream efficiently over RTP or, indeed, any transport.

The only problem is that it isn't implemented in ORBit and I have a feeling 
it'll be an awful lot of work to do so. Could be more beneficial to the 
GNOME project as a whole though. Right now I've started work on a bonobo 
pipeline object but I'd be interested in helping address the stream 
distribution problem next.
