Yeah, I've seen and (slightly) experimented with Airhook.   We also have 
nodes on the end of cdpd modems (which airhook was designed for) and are 
working on 1X cellular modem connectivty as I speak.

I saw the message queue properties of Spread and was smitten by it.  
With Airhook I'd have to cobble together stuff from scratch (similar to 
what I did with paranoid-out-the-wazoo shell script machinations that 
used scp for transfer).

Ahh well, I guess I can try to run xmlblaster over Airhook or somesuch...
