Dont want to disencourage, but ... ;)
Netpipes is like netcat (nc), it's for piping (like the '|'  shell sign) streams
across a
network. But only in 2D space. This tool is just too simplistic for our needs.
It aint
got the ability to define connection types at all.
As I said before, I'm intending to use Gnet for high speed connections, and
for all the others. Gnet is a direct concurrent to netpipes, but it's a library
doesn't need any coding to integrate with the BL. Netpipes could be used in a
'wrapping' mode, but that's not very tempting to me.
