Thank you for your quick response and willingness to help.
Initially I just wanted to find if anybody was working on this and possibly help them.
However, since nobody is working on this, I have started writing
a cleanroom implementation using the Illumos code as reference.
I will be in touch via IRC should any major issues arise.
Thank you once again!

I believe we still need a clean room implementation if we want the IPC
subsystem to be better integrated.
