Local? Funny. It lives atop of TCP or IL quite fine. What's
even funnier, I can use it to export /proc from CPU server to workstation
and use _that_ for remote debugging. Ditto for window system. Ditto for
DNS. Ditto for plumber. No, not on Linux...

What you do is mapping your RPC to hierarchical namespace. After
that... What extensibility do you need? You can use every utility written
for core UNIX API (open()/read()/write()/close()) as a client. No need
to reinvent the wheel...
