We've already seen - as non-serious as it was - kORB (not entirely sure of
the correct name, but it was an ORB in the kernel nonetheless). :)

[ That actually inspired some Great Slashdot Cluelessness in the form of,
"GNOME? In the kernAL? OMG you're turning Linux into Windows!!!" etc. ]

The ability to pick and choose what's kernel-worthy based on your needs is
definitely worthwhile, though.
