Indeed.  The first implementation of IIOP was a little engine
I wrote, which I seem to recall compiled to about 5Kb on an x86.

That's client and server side, both -- all you needed to interop
with another IIOP engine (a.k.a ORB).  And yes, it was faster
than any commercial product I remember hearing about, not just
smaller than them.  I remember noticing when I hit the sweet spot
to get have the core engine stay inside that little cache on the
486 CPU ... there's nothing like such an observation for an XML
package.

I don't recall seeing an XML parser that small, much less one
that also embedded the networking support.  On the other hand,
CORBA vendors also add their own share of glop to the mix, so
things tend to even out.
