I've been thinking about this and I think the daemon is definitly the way to go. If Rick can't release the code I can write one. I think the protocol could be like this:
I found the code and although it is not as pretty as I remember it is available for release. It's in php with a tcpserver front end. It currently lacks user authentication though.
From then on we could pass commands like: For admin accounts: vadduser [EMAIL PROTECTED] pass vdeluser [EMAIL PROTECTED] vadddomain domain postmaster-pass vdeldomain domain
Very easy to add modules to the server, just add a case statement.
I already have server code to handle this kind of daemon in both single threaded and multithreaded modes.
Since it's written in php, and uses tcpserver as the socket connector, it should scale quite well.
