Do you want to keep the whole name lookup in userland or query a
cache like ARP is doing and fallback to the userland daemon if no
entry exists in the cache? In the later case, you could just reinsert
the package into the global queue after adding the cache entry.
The cache handling itself could be done via normal routing messages
or other communication means like polling a special device.
