Yes, wmiibar2.c only works rudimentary at the moment. A complete
and easy to understand 9P server can be found,
though it doesn't uses libixp2 but lib9p. The tricky parts are
the Qid-mapping of synthetic files to struct fields.

I hope to finish wmiibar2 asap, that you see a complete sample.

I know, it is pioneer area for me as well ;)
