your »plumb« looks like the Plan 9 plumber[0] done wrong,
whereas your »plumbnet« is a wrong done socat[1] or
ncat[2]. Those tools do network right and allow further
configuration, like encryption, wrappers, filters, etc.,
which your application will only find out on purpose, if
anyone needs it.

Please consider migrating or adapting to any of these
already created solutions to your problem.
