ok, first some more arguments for a standalone driver:

- easier to manage if more drivers come up
- using alternative drivers
- using alternative LCDd programms
- making an executable out of a driver is simple:
  the main() function parses input an calls the apropriate procedure with
  parameters
- as I mentioned, kernel drivers could be used
- linux is real multitasking (on a dual processor machine, the driver, client
   and server could run on different cpus :) )

bad thing:
- for small systems there has to be an extra version of LCDd

But: shouldn't there be a special (with a single driver only) version for small
     systems


Next thing, what do you think about the idea to seperate input and output
drivers?

cu,
