    Summary: Section of ptc/98-10-11 includes the following statement wrt to
    ObV chunking:

    "The data may be split into multiple chunks at arbitrary points except
    within primitive CDR types, arrays of primitive types, strings, and

    Unfortunately, this provides only dubious benfits, but introduces
    significant problems. Traditionally, CDR has been designed so that encoding
    engines are only responsible for marshalling CDR primitives, and remain
    independent of the actual constructed IDL type being marshalled. The above
    clause violates this rule: the CDR stream must know that the primitives
    being marshalled are part of an array, understand the size of the array,
    distinguish sequences from arrays, etc.

    In addition, this is impossible to implement using the Java portable
