Judging from that documentation, nnoo is only about inheritance, so that
you don't have to redefine identical functions if you want to re-use an
existing backend.

It doesn't explain at all what e.g. nnoo-change-server is good for, or
that nnoo also manages per-server state (which it seems to do, but I'm
not sure).
