First I want to work more on libnet and turn existing functions into
async interface. As my development time is limited, I don't want to
touch ejs before doing at least one month more of work on libnet (which
means that basic user management functions should be completed then).
After that, I can have a look at ejs.

I have a bit similar plans (management tool) about libnet.

You mean command line interfaces powered by ejs ?
