What is LP?...
LP is a special protocol written by the Plan9 team that is something in between TCP and UPD.  They wanted a reliable stream but as fast as UDP and a few other benefits.  They said  TCP was too slow.  I'm not sure if it's justified, and I wasn't planning on implementing it.  I could since according to them it's about half the code length as the TCP protocol and a lot simpler.  They developed it specifically for remote commands from what I've read.  Like I said, I'm not sure if it's really justified and not sure if anyone else uses it.

This sounds perfectly reasonable. Don't see any bad style in there :-)
Great.  I didn't think it was a bad idea.  I would let whoever browse through either hierarchy.
