We don't talk about sb_filter but sb_bnfilter and, i think you do
anything SB related in (except sb_bnserver fork) ?
i don't really see  where is the difference .. your code just need
a option to disable the sb_bnserver fork to use the global server 
no ? 

Toby could you send me your code by email please, because i don't have
cvs install here ..

What's this ? URL ? 

Bye Bye .
