Maybe we could use Flick from Utah.

"Flick is not just optimizing: it is also extremely flexible. Flick 
 currently supports the CORBA, ONC RPC (Sun RPC), and MIG IDLs.
 written in any of these languages can be implemented by CORBA-, ONC
 or MIG-style C language ``stubs'' communicating via CORBA IIOP,
 ONC/TCP, Mach 3 ports, Trapeze, or Fluke IPC. Flick also generates
 CORBA C++ stubs that work with TAO, the real-time CORBA ORB. Finally,
 Flick is a ``kit'' of components, it can be extended to support new
IDLs, m
 essage data formats, and transport mechanisms."
