Hmm, that's an interesting thought, because that was actually one of the
possible mechanisms that I had in mind for the traffic manager. That is, have
the schedules managed by an independent program that would communicate with
FlightGear through a network layer. In the end I decided not to go into this
direction after doing some tests and finding that the the easiest way to do
it was by adding the traffic manager as a subsystem to the main FlightGear
program, specifically because the overhead of managing the schedules turned
out to be a quite low.
Doing this through a network remains an interesting option though...
