  I don't really care if it's available as source.  I don't think the
interface is documented beyond the API, and that's not good enough for 
an alternate implementation.  If anyone's found a specification (below 
the API level), or knows about an implementation based on reverse
engineering of a working system, that's good enough for me. ;)
  There is another message bus system based on X11 called KoalaTalk,
but I'm not sure of it's current status; see

	ftp://koala.inria.fr/pub/KoalaTalk/

It depends on libICE from X11R6, but the manual indicates that clients 
don't need to be X clients, which I find confusing.  Perhaps someone
who knows more about what's in libICE can explain what libICE has to
do with it; it looks like it's based on Sun RPC, so it *should* be
usable just about anywhere.  The archives on the FTP site are dated
1995, so it appears unmaintained.  The Koala project's home page
(http://www.inria.fr/koala/) certainly leads me to think this isn't
maintained.
  Or it could be bug-free.  ;)
