could/would this be used for a possible implementation of NSS, for

plugins (ldap, sql, whatnot) and a libc getpwent(3) and stuff which queries
this daemon, by some means. Is this some means possibly the protocol you
are outlining, would we need a layer in between (lwkt?) or would we use
something completely else?
You mean something akin to Netinfo (as it's used on OS X, and how it was used
I don't know how netinfo works in its internals, but something like it, maybe. Just netinfo sounds really big and fat and unusable (in my experience). What I want is something small which just does one thing: host plugins for NSS and reply to queries.
