Jeez, do you think you'll be coming back as a bunch of CORBA objects?

Sir, you demonstrate an obvious misunderstanding of details of the uploading process. It is much less coding than a large-scale physical simulation -- requiring a very different set of metaphors than common to code monkeys. Very little code, a huge sea of data. And sheer physics will prevent you from running it on anything less than a 10^6..10^9 processor machine.
