I thought it did, but that was incorrect. The protocol it uses behind the
scenes was switched from CORBA to D-Bus before upstream maintenance ended.

If someone (you or otherwise) wants to keep libgnome, libgnomeui or

orbit2 and libidl (the "Network Object Model" part of the original
expansion of the GNOME acronym).
