CORBA is only a source level standard. It is not restricted to IIOP
or any other message passing protocol, the so to say "backend"
can be changed according to need. For example regular IPC on the same
machine can be done through the Mach message passing facilities, like
MIG does now, however the same code that uses CORBA can easily
be adapted to use IIOP for remote machines by changing the "backend".
The details depend on the ORB (object request broker).
