Ok, moved to interfaces as suggested
Maybe it would be a good idea to strip CC:s ?

Add 1.A. here: extend current FE<->BE interface to support prepared
statements, at least to the level of SPI, maybe even _start_ from
SPI CORBA interface. "Extended" because SPI had same deficiences as
well compared to the "main" FE<->BE protocol.

I think, that we should start with an ORB that has C-interface
'cause the rest of PostgreSQL is in C.
The time will probably be better spent on implementing the
unimplemented sections rather than writing a C to C++ wrapper
(the part which should in theory be made unneccesary by CORBA !)
So supporting other language IDL mappings
directly in backend seems not to be a very good idea
Of course we should support all C mappings.
