That's right.

Now I have splitted the file into manageable classes, the stuff is rejected 
by the MICO IDL compiler. The problem is that CORBA modules are mapped to C+
+ 'struct' which can not be open twice. You can't have a class declaration 
enclose a struct definition followed be a new class declaration in the same 
module. The alternative are :
* change for a compiler that supports namespaces. This means less 
* change ORB.
* keep this single huge IDL file.
* change language generation (map to Java). Drawbacks ?

Your point of view ?
