There's two different things as I see it, correct me if I'm wrong. There's the
RA layer in C which will use the protocol. This won't change and I'm not
suggesting modifying it. I'm just saying, make the new protocol capable of
making the FS interface available over the network. Other people can write
their own code on top of the protocol separate from the RA layer.
