    Err, yes, and no. I tried to merge proc and sysctl during my work on
    a proc2... It's easy for new things (with a new interface), but for the
    old ones compatiblity is important?? (seems not to be the case as you
    mentioned)

    So well, a binary interface to some features is good, IMHO.

    Richard.

    PS: I thought of using printf/scanf like strings in a generic proc solution.
    The binary interface would be just copying things around.
