OK, could you then please list all the things that bug you in the
current FPCUnit, so we don't duplicate the issues.

This is what I expected. :-)

I have used Interfaces in a few of my projects and found it quite
handy and can't say that I experienced any issues. I'm nothing near
and expert with them though, but do "get" them. I have only been using
the default Delphi/COM based Interfaces (if that's what you call
them), not the Corba ones. At the time, the Corba Interfaces still had
many issues, but I think they have all been resolved since.

Could you clarify what issues you have experienced. If any bugs
remain, maybe now would be a good time to resolve those as well.
