Yeah, i only wrapped what i needed in Salut. The freeze thing in the group
entry allows you to do do various changes to the entry group and
pushing that in one go to avahi. 

So for salut at some point i need to update two TXT records ``atomically'',
thus i freeze the group, change the entries and thaw it again causing all the
changes to be pushed in one go.

Any feedback is very much appreciated :)

Mathematicians are like Frenchmen:  whatever you say to them they translate
into their own language and forthwith it is something entirely different.
