Well, these sound cool, but how do you plan to design & implement services
interface? a while ago I used to patch hybserv, adding command handlers
to hybrid in modules; but AFAIK all those SVS commands are not
standardized and vary from one services implementation to another - so my
hybrid7-bg mod would not work with services other than my hybserv-bg mod.

Maybe that should not be hard-coded but rather configurable via regexps
with extracting parameters like BOPM does or something.
