This is pretty irrelevant to the original email, but in terms of IPC
protocols, what would you suggest instead?

I've been writing a small application with dbus recently, and I've been
pretty happy with dbus as a protocol. It looks to be very good at
solving some of the problems that plain text can't, and its interfaces
seem like not at all a bad a choice for complex (that is, non purely
textual) interaction. I imagine, however, that its OO-ness and relative
size make it somewhat unpopular among the 'minimal-at-any-cost' subset
of the suckless community. Does anyone have any specific protocol
recommendations, and thoughts on dbus (or RPC in general) as a method
for complex IPC? thanks!
