You guys seem to want something that isn't AF_UNIX, ordering guarentees
and whatnot, it really has no place in these protocols.

You've designed a userlevel subsystem with requirements that no existing
socket layer can give, and you just figured you'd work that out later.

I think you rather should have reconsidered these premises and designed
something that could handle reality which is AF_UNIX can't do multicast
and nobody guarentees those strange ordering requirements you seem to
have.
