I like it!  :-)

I wasn't aware of Linnet.  In that case, forget all servers in SEUL.  If
they want servers, they'll get Linnet!

The possible exception would be an RDBMS server.  But we need to plan it
carefully - how would it benefit the end user to have a client/server
database on his system?  I think it could be nice in workgroups, but
possibly overkill.
