I see.  I don't know if it is a good idea to put hooks in libports, though.
Not all ports are managed by it, so you will miss RPCs if you just
do it there, and anyway I think it is not very elegant.

Maybe you can put something in rpctrace that makes it communicate with
a master serv that collects messages from several tasks... but that's just
an idea, I haven't thought that through.  As you need a master server
anyway, and there is already the logic to intercept rpcs in rpctrace.
