Good.  Have such things been written down somewhere?

Fine, but are you in fact suggesting to have separate server for i/o
ports and memory access?  I would have stashed those two interfaces (as
well as any others?) into one single server.

I completely agree.  I didn't like that name myself, but couldn't easily
come up with a better one, so posted that one more or less as a

Now, if Roland suggests to separate the i/o port and memory access
interfaces then we could (for example) simply have the suggested
`/servers/ioperm' and a `/servers/mem' (or `/dev/mem'? -- but our thing
is more advances than the usual Unix system's `/dev/mem' is, so we'd
rather put it into `/servers/', I think).

Do we want separate servers?
