    [Joaquin Miller] Does the messaging mode support CORBA's messaging styles?

    I can't tell the difference.

    The CORBA spec says this is a synchronous operation called
    asynchronously, but the caller still has the option to get the results
    at a later time. Action semantics does not support this. The
    workaround would be complicated.
