does this mean that we're turning away from the message based communication back to a monolithic execution, or is syslink just a different, better (address space agnostic) messaging system, which can be used within the kernel as well?

i just got the feeling that with this is will be really easy to forward devices via network to other boxes, like the sound card or the usb stick from a thin diskless client to the application server...  right?

good work!
