is a big help in doing the things HRP wants to do. Certainly when I have looked at doing that
sort of cleanup, the current structure is an impediment. For example, the RPC logic needs
to be pulled out of mgmt and put in a separate library so it can be linked easily by any executable.
But where does that go? I suppose lib/rpc but it's unclear.

Sure, but we need to be really specific here in order to understand the proposal. What exactly
do you mean by the "RPC logic"? Just and Everything
depends on? Or do you mean the libmgmt API?

only for a short while. The latter drags out the pain so it's a somewhat chronic condition.
In either case, though, we'd need a final target that we are working toward.

If you understand how to decouple a dependency, then I think the best approach is to just
decouple that dependency and move on to the next. Given a specific change, we can understand
what it means and where is belongs.
