The corba repository is compiled with the boot JDK so it's not currently 
possible to use new language features or libraries. Hopefully in time 
this wart in the build can be sorted out, maybe by compiling it at the 
same time (there are circularly dependencies due to support for the IIOP 
transport in a few areas, plus other CORBA interop). So you are right 
that Objects couldn't be used if back-ported (although I wasn't planning 
to do that).
