I helped write parts of that tutorial. I agree with you that manually  
writing those descriptors is hard, tedious, and error prone. Luckily,  
you don't have to manually write them. Generating those descriptors  
with cosmic greatly simplifies your task. The rest of the tutorial  
describes this in detail. I'm assuming you're talking about the  
tutorial in $CIAO-ROOT/docs/tutorials/simple/quoter, if that's not the  
tutorial you're referring to, then give the tutorial I mentioned a try.

Yes, this is what cosmic is for.

The descriptors are platform independent. We've used them under  
windows, Linux, timesys, and lynxos without problems.
