OK, I'll try.

As an example, say you have a system service that's used to sync PDAs or
whatever. That process needs to keep running as long as at least one PDA
is plugged in, but it also needs to be told when you connect a second

My idea how to handle that most conveniently would be sortof like
"instance", but instead of forking a new process for each event you'd
start only one process and feed the start/stop events to that.
