zForms and plugins

I'm in the middle of implementing remote administration capabilities for a MUD codebase that I'm working with right now. I reused the socket code in the MUD to implement this. Most of the current RPC libraries implement everything over HTTP; XML-RPC, SOAP, JSON-RPC. I managed to get JSON-RPC to talk over a raw socket, since I didn't want to encumber the MUD with extra stuff like a mini-webserver.

While thinking about the actual MUD admin console, I thought that CMUD and zForms would be a perfect platform for this. The only concern I have is that I would need a plugin to handle the packets. IIRC, the last time I was doing plugins in zMUD, it send text line-by line. I imagine that I could get around this by watching for the begin and end markers on the incoming packets, since it's just all text.

Anyways, the point of this post is to let you know that I have an interesting test case for when you start implementing zForms from zApp and plugins. Cool
