Legacy Issue Number: 3708
Source: University of California, Irvine ( Carlos O'Ryan)
I think I found a possible (very minor) optimization for the
GIOP 1.3 spec, but maybe I'm missing something in GIOP 1.2
The new <target> field on the RequestHeader_1_2 structure is
always aligned to a 4 byte boundary, the reserved field ensures
that. Consequently the discriminant for the TargetAddress union
does not end on a 4 byte boundary, but will require 2 bytes of padding
following it, since all the union values in this case start on 4 byte
IMHO, using just 1 byte for the reserved field, would have
resulted in more natural alignments. Did I get something wrong here?
Is this something likely to be fixed in GIOP 1.3?

Close this issue as too much of a change for this RTF, and add it to the GIOP wish list for future p
