Thanks for your suggestion, it looks pretty simple to me based on the 
core-*.c examples. Where can I find documentation for such calls as 
avahi_server_add_service()? I have found Doxygen documentation for 
similar functions such as avahi_entry_group_add_service(), but could you 
please point me to the definitive documentation if any? Obviously I can 
browse the source but would prefer to "Read The Fine Manual" ;-)

Best regards,
