[PD] rendezvous/zeroconf and pd

I am planning on adding rendezvous functionality to Pd and I am 
wondering what the best approach is.

(Rendezvous is the impromptu networking system best known for what 
Apple is doing with it on iChat, iTunes, etc.  It  is an outgrowth of  
"Zero Configuration" aka Zeroconf.  It is basically a way of 
advertising services that your machine offers on a local network 

I was originally thinking that it would probably make sense to just 
make a separate object for this.  But it might make sense to 
incorporate it into [netserver] and [netreceive] since they are the 
objects that are actually providing service (in the form of opening the 
actual port) which Rendezvous would be advertising .

Thoughts, comments?
