Thanks. I think I've sent my answer to the wrong address again, so I 
write it down, sorry if I duplicate myself.

So we will go on implementing this NameServer-like object.

There is still one question: Can one nameserver bear 400.000 requests 
consecutively? I mean I saw that the NameServer is creating newer and 
newer threads if it gets big load. But there is a Linux op system limit 
on the number of processes run by one user. Is the omniORB takes this 
limit into account? Or I have to dodge it somehow?
