Daemon vs. Shared library

Since a shared object can be used to share static data, as long as
processes need to communicate on the same machine and need RPC
semantics (clients are single thread, server uses synchronized
access), this is probably enough.

However, this does needs shared memory for the shared data, and
semaphores to protect them.  The API can abstract this.
