IPC nsswitch implementation



The Mac OS X lookupd does aggressive caching with cache invalidation 
support, supports the notion of flushing the cache on certain events 
(like when you reconfigure your network interfaces or switch 
authentication plugins), and quite a few other things.  No surprise, 
really, given that it's been around for years.

Julian was asking where to find it, and for those who get lost 
navigating Apple's darwin site, there's also opendarwin's cvsweb 
interface.  Darwin's "nsswitch" implementation lives in Libinfo, of 
which lookupd is a sub-project:
