I guess your looking for an updated "diagram or gloassary", as Carlos just
mentioned.  I'll get that out shortly.

As far as the details of network communication is concerned, Paos will be more
heavily involved in this than I originally planned and should handle all the
networking for us.  I expect networked communication between tools to be almost
identical to communication between tools on the same computer.
