The zmap is implemented in C. Most of the code would not be appropriate to be
implemented as a .so file but.....

zmap (our client) is structured like this:

                            ------ file reader
GUI ----- generalised -----|------ acedb server interface
          data source      |
          interface        |
                           |------ DAS2 server interface

the DAS2 server interface could be to a C based parser written as a .so
library...we have to write the code to do the parsing so it could potentially
form the basis of a DAS2 C parser...

I say "potentially" because I would need to think about how much work it would
be as we are on a pretty tight schedule for the rest of the work...

But a good idea...
