Hi, thanks for your comments.

still be a good name.

 About the name 'application'.

I chose this name because the library can support many kinds of
application, see:

>> From the current name, one would be unlikely to guess that it could do
daemon work?

The name 'Daemon' is usual in POSIX world. In Windows world the usual is

I could call it as 'server', but it would also be wrong due to support for
common application. In future the library can support other kinds of
application (e.g. apache httpd modules)

Thus I think that the name 'application' is more suitable.

Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks for help
