I asked Yawning today if this part should (a) use a socket to a process
that already exists, or (b) exec a helper program that communicates
over a pipe tied to its stdio. He mentioned the PT spec does both,
which I interpreted as going either way at the time. In fact, the PT
spec literally requires both stdio and a socket, which sounds overly
complex for this.
Anyways, if we wanted to to exec a helper program, the configuration
might look something like :
NameService [.]dnspath [opts ..] exec helper_prog [opts ..]
We could simply speak to the helper over a pipe tied to its stdio.
