The freeze of Debian 7 "Wheezy" is nigh. Please upload polyorb without
CORBA support quickly (and narval thereafter) and fix CORBA later as time
permits. I agree that it would be a shame to lose CORBA support but it
would be even worse to lose all of polyorb and narval due to not
uploading in time for the freeze.
