Assume we had a nice header file.  Where would it live?  What are the 
mechanics of getting it to ntpsec or gpsd?

Maybe another project with the sample/test code?


I think we should put the current stuff on the back burner and make a new SHM 
interface where the clients are read only.

Is shmget/shmat the right API to use?  I remember discussions of there being a 
wrong API but don't remember any details.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
