acknowledged and already understood.

btw, been thinking a lot but too busy
to write it up: 200 o/s msgs and only 30mins/day to
clear them.

a) the NAL would go a long way to fulfilling that bold statement
and also providing the functionality i will need.

b) i have to say, after a lot of thought, that for xvl
(but not for a dce/rpc and smb client/server implementation)
the apr_namedpipe_xxx() api - as posted - *as long as
it's possible to do a select / listen / accept on all
platforms* - will be enough.
