usually, a good network implementation should not have a problem with multiple
users on the same port. think of a web site .....
and then, many programs can be used stand-alone as deamons, that means for
an ftp connection is incomming, the network deamon (inetd, xinetd, ...) fires
up the neccesarry software/program to handle the incomming connection.
maybe it could all be done by just dynamically instantiating a subpatch for
each incomming connection (and destroying afterwards), controlled by external
events? like a script, called by inetd, sending a message to pd to create a
subpatch (i.e. netsend/receive) by using the given network parameters?
just a thought ....
