I've been doing a lot of lurking on this and the other bio*.org
list serves, but thought I would speak up about this since I've been
looking for something I might be able to contibute to biopython.
I've been watching with interest the thread on the bioperl-guts
about Ewan's idl proposal, since I think it is an excellent idea, and
since I've been looking for an opportunity to get some experience
coding CORBA stuff. So, although I don't have any first hand CORBA
experience (great credentials, I know :-) I've been doing a lot of
reading up on things, and have been playing around with the Fnorb
examples, kind of waiting for some CORBA coding opportunity to come my
So anyways, I'd be very interested in trying to get the biopython
code (whatever there is of it--I'm in the dark about what is completed
since I don't have cvs access) compliant with the proposed idl, if you
all would like to have a beginner give it a shot...
