    SubjectRe: [PATCH 2.6.15] Adding kernel-level identd dispatcher

    My point is that everything which follows this
    conditions should be moved into kernel:
    - must dispatch requests in a fixed time
    - must work rarely, sleep most time
    - must depend on internal kernel variables (for
    example, established connections table)

    Don't forget that many years ago there was echo daemon
    in userspace. But as it's highly effective to dispatch
    all echo requests in kernel, it was moved into
    low-level TCP implementation.

    I think that ident protocol also matches this
