Oh, if I'm allowed to speak *wink*, it would be great if in this
refactoring 'zrpc' could be made to work with less dependencies.
I'm using 'zrpc' on a project and it was a pain to implement a
minimally working application because it depended on a few convoluted
steps to setup, some of which could be trivially removed.
One way or another, I think Jim's refactoring would simplify this,
even if it's not a explicitly stated goal.
