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.

If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
