You are aware, aren't you, that Mico has no support whatsoever for
interfacing to C code? If PostgreSQL will base it's preliminary support on
Mico, then all the interface development will have to be done twice: once
in C, and then a C++ wrapper to mediate between PostgreSQL and Mico.

I would recommend you look more closely into the role language mappings play
in the CORBA architecture, versus the role played by Inter-Orb bridges.
