correct me if my perceptions are wrong, but the strategic aim is to
provide a remote method of administering samba.  this requires some IPC
mechanism.  the mechanism needs to be as suitable for internal
communication (on the same machine, between daemons) as it does for remote
communication (on different machines over a network)

suggested means:

3) proprietary.
