For a better, permanent solution, can we at some point have the PL (or each
layer) "say" that they are ready?  Can we have the PL place its PID in a file

I just think that an arbitrary delay might not always work.  What if the PL is
on a slower computer and requires more time than N seconds?  And, on faster
computers the PL might start much quicker than N seconds.
