Yeah, that would be sufficient (Unix only).  Just give us an idea of 
what you are talking about.  The fact that on NT/OS2 it goes directly 
to a system call that is named pipes and on Unix goes to domain sockets 
(I need to read up on those) doesn't bother me in the least.  The 
functionality would have to be equivalent (LCD) and they would have to 
be able to talk to each other.  

So the Unix implementation on the network side has to be compatible 
with the NT implementation - how are endian issues dealt with in SMB,
for example?

That's what we are here for.  =)  We're not perfect, but enough good
people looking at it will do just fine for our purposes.  -- justin
