I was thinking of a raw interface although a UDP-like protocol would be kind of neat (so that you could do multiplexing).

Which datagram service, Anthony?  Having a small lib like this
would be a good idea, although the benefit would be in the details,
and of course, depending on how many apps we need to support that
we don't want to modify...

I must admit I've not put much thought into it.  What are your thoughts?
