The problem as i see it (as a non programmer) is that PHP is not very
good at making a multithreaded deamon, but could a generic deamon not be
made in c++ (or something else good for that job), and then this deamon
spawns PHP scripts as it's "business logic".

It should be possible to make a very generic deamon having some sort of
queuing to keep everything i sync or not in synch, as requested by the

Best regards
