    Effectively sounds really interesting. I agree with Oliver in thinking
    this solution whould go into sanei, too.
    Using shared memory seems not to be a good solution, in that it forces to
    use more than one solution on systems which do not support shared memoory
    (AFAIK this is not an OS/2 problem...).
