that's why I think we should clearly look at it now...
what bugs me is the server request which only partially implement a
so, if we freeze them now, we'll have to add another request, which will 
be a subset of the existing one
in order to prevent too much code bloat in this area, this should be
rather carefully. it doesn't mean we have to implement all the features,
means we need to pass most of the information (when possible)

(I particulary have in mind the CreateProcess API)
