I think the missing piece from TAO's Valuetype support needed
to support interoperability with EJBs was boxed valuetypes.
Support for boxed valuetypes was added to TAO 1.4.7.  I suggest
trying it out with the DOC Group's latest release (1.6.1) or with
OCI's latest release (TAO 1.5a_p3) to see how it works.  If you
get it working, we would really appreciate the contribution of an
example.  If you need support, do not hesitate to contact OCI or
one of the other companies that provides commercial support for
