The EOB usage is only one way.  Tonight for example I was pairing with 
Charles Lowell with a project that he is co-lead for MarathonMan @ 
Sourceforge ( ).  It is a kick-ass 
GUI testing framework.  It needs to move to be more like Cactus for 
various reasons  As such the team needs RPC steerage of the testee app. 
 AltRMI looks to be the appropriate beast after a small amount of 

And I'd prefer it if they were kept separate. One is to do with 
Client/Server, the other to do with Application serving.

It might.  I do not want to have package rename shenanigans too often. 
 I'd prefer org.apache.eob for when EOB arrives at Apache. For that 
matter Id prefer org.apache.altrmi as it goes 1.0, but I know not the 
rules for incubator.

Contributors thus far are,,,, as well as myself
I'd have to ask Jeff and Leif and Berin though for their opinions.

It will take its time, but the potential package schenanigans are a factor.
