Yep, this is largely similar to our own ideas for CTDB API.
I'm not yet sure that warping everything into a multiplexer would be
good though but given that all those calls have same input and output it
looks promising.

We'll need to take care of separating both client and server part of
CTDB API and this is where probably multiplexer-like ctdb_call() might
be a better approach as it would allow to keep the high level API the
same and differentiate within the ctdb_call() implementations.
