Yes, the helper daemon is pretty crufty stuff.  I threw something together
so that the kernel server could get configured and authenticate users to
the server and determine a user's access to a share.  It used LDAP as the
backend data base for containing information both about the users and the
server itself.

The user level code that I wrote was single threaded.  I was planning on
multithreading it if it became a bottle neck to the kernel server.
