I think there is some misunderstanding here about the separation between 
daemon and the backends. The question isn't so much about the daemon itself, 
as well as how the backends run. Do the backends run in a process of 
themselve, as separate thread in the daemon process or do they time-share the 
main single thread of the daemon?
