What about the role of Mission Control in handling tubes? When a tube
negotiation channel appears, which application should it launch? It can't
really make a useful decision until it knows what kind of tube is being
offered, and if this application gets started by Mission Control, it's going
to need to be able to recober the state of the tube.
