Has anyone asked Sun whether they would dual-license the needed header files 
under a BSD-friendly license?  Or whether they would publish the APIs via an 
RFC so that you could easily re-implement against that as a published spec? 
Sun's released lots of things like XDR and NFS via RFCs, so it's at least not 
unprecedented.  :-)

Anyone know Casper Dik well?
