There is a part missing here where the caller who does this need to spawn the agent. I will think about this (and suggest a revised design) but only if you like the general idea. I've done this kind of thing before (see watershed(1) for example) so if you want I can implement it. Ian. -- Ian Jackson <ijack...@chiark.greenend.org.uk> These opinions are my own.
