Socket map daemon and implementation framework.

Socket maps are a mechanism for extending the functionality of
Sendmail and MeTA1.

Smap provides a comprehensive set of tools for configuring, testing and writing socket maps.

Its main component, smapd, is a modular server which handles socket
map requests. Instead of doing searches for each request, smapd relies on loadable modules to provide the requested functionality. In other words, the server is responsible for handling socket map protocol, and for dispatching queries to appropriate modules. Modules, in their turn, are responsible for looking up the requested key and returning the result.

Second important part of the package is a set of loadable modules for
smapd. These modules cover several important database management
systems and make it possible to easily configure servers for
retrieving data from them.

The package provides also API for writing new modules, either in C or in Guile.

Finally, Smap includes a client program, smapc, which can be used
to query arbitrary socket servers from the command line.
