Rather than inventing new protocols, why not just use DCE RPC over domain
sockets or TCP/IP?
The only catch is that you need a DCE RPC client library. We're using the
OSF DCE runtime (actually, FreeDCE), which is BSD-licensed.
We are doing a similar thing, except in reverse, so that SAMBA can act as
a named pipe front-end to our proprietary DCE RPC services. More
