I was just saying that on the basis of what Dave said in his initial
post.  All that perl sockets stuff is irrelevant if AcePerl just points
at saceclient.  However, if AcePerl is talking directly as above, it's
probably more efficient, rather than going via an intermediate aceclient
binary, as it used to do with the RPC server.
