Since there is already a reasonable amount of socket handling code in
libassuan, I though I'd be a bit more explicit about what I wanted to
* General server-related option definition and handling (oServer,
oDaemon, oNoDetach, …)
* Server-related global variables and handling (shutdown_pending,
check_own_socket_running, socket_name, socket_nonce,
create_socket_name, check_for_running_agent, …)
* Cleanup and signal handling (remove_socket, handle_signal, …). In
order to allow flexible signal handling, there should be stand-alone
handlers for common signals (i.e. assuan_handle_sigint,
assuan_handle_sigterm). Users would have to use nPth themselves to
That would be a good start anyway ;). I'll probably run into some
others if I get a green light to start working on this.
