Leroy and Mauny relate several interesting applications of the dynamic construct, beyond low-level operations such as marshalling and unmarshalling.
They demonstrate that dynamic type dispatch can be used to implement the marshalling and unmarshalling of values in distributed programming, as outlined by Ohori and Kato [1993], and that dynamics can be viewed as existential types combined with dynamic type dispatch.
The compiler generates specific marshalling and unmarshalling routines for each operation, which convert between Orca data structures and flat messages that can be transmitted over the network.
