Wasn't it W.C. Fields that said:  "Quitting drinking is easy.  I've
done it hundreds of times!"

I've started the work to move the interface/database code into a
separate daemon several times now.  I'm planning to start that
effort again this summer, hopefully to complete it this time.  This
is the first step toward Xastir 2.0, as then we can add an SQL
database onto it and create clients to talk to it.
