You could just pull the TLI/XTI over sockets emulation from iBCS and
make it a separate module. It's not a real STREAMS based TLI but
does most of what is needed - although anything that expects to be
able to push arbitrary STREAMS modules on to a transport end point
is in trouble. It would make more sense for Informix to use a user
space TLI over sockets library or to write a sockets version of
their net code. Although I seem to remember that they have their
own STREAMS module to link in to the host kernel (which is a
bugger for portability). If they _really_ need a full STREAMS
stack they had better join the LiS project sharpish because their
no-STREAMS competitors will have a good head start :-).
