Well - you depend on assumption that everyone in shared memory area
behaves correctly. And I do not want to depend on that. I would like
to build generic message-passing (and then build something more on
that); unix domain sockets would be very good for me, but they are
slow and I do not understand why. Too much time is spend in
scheduler...
