So, if inetd is out, are we okay with requiring a process to be
started as root at system startup?
Unless we go back to the approach of allowing the process to be
launched directly from the user's process via the library, and deal
with the SIGCHLD issue, it sounds like the process not being there
would simply be a fatal error (credential cache can't be created, and
looking for it gets either not-found or internal-error).
If we want to allow non-privileged users to install and use this code
(including for our own test suite), there will need to be some scheme
for overriding the connection-point determination scheme. There's
always environment variables. Or some value stuffed into the ccache
