Legacy Issue Number: 5690
Source: Floorboard Software ( Jonathan Biggar)
"This attribute contains the arguments passed to ORB_init. They may or
may not contain the ORB's arguments."
First, what good does this do? A portable application can't depend on
anything useful being returned by this attribute.
This should be changed to state that ORBInitInfo::arguments() returns
the original unmodified argv parameter that was passed to ORB_init.
Second, this attribute really ought to be read-write, so that an
Interceptor implementation can find and strip out arguments that are
intended for the Interceptor.
Alternatively, we should specify a standard prefix for arguments that
are recognized and processed by interceptors, so that the ORB and client
code can be explicitly coded to recognize and ignore them.
