I've never used it(as far as I know..) but apt-cache says
Description: CORBA ORB (omniORB) - c++ implementation
omniORB is a freely available Common Object Request Broker
Architecture (CORBA) 2.3 compliant object request broker (ORB)
implementation. It is based on the IIOP communications
protocol and should be interoperable with any other
CORBA 2.3 compliant ORB.
you can always remove it, apt-get remove omniorb, if something else
needs it, the system will prompt to remove that as well, if its something
you need you can keep it, I've never had it on my systems though as far
as I can remember.
