Thanks for the reference.  My applications (and most where I really value
a VM) tend to be more groupware-like, but not necessarily the low
volume typical of traditional groupware, and I prefer to still think in the
transaction model, and when you point millions of users at different parts
of the same distributed object graphs and want them to interact,
groupware or not, it probably isn't low volume, however slow individual
network connections may be.
