A proposal for a next gen srv

Eric Van Hensbergen over at Grave Robbers From Outer Space (aka. IBM Research), has started working on srvĀ²: a proposal for a next generation service registry to replace the venerable srv(3) device (aka #s and /srv).

Part of the idea is to bring srv to user space and make it more dynamic; motivated by requirements for the Blue Gene/FastOS work it would support propagation and discovery of services in neighboring nodes, perhaps taking advantage of an improved ndb that uses zerconf or inferno’s virgild.

Ericvh has many other ideas, see his blog post on the subject for further details.
