Perhaps we could agree on a single API for the low-level message parsing
and netlink message construction. At least then we would not be
duplicating bug-fixes in our netlink code.
Whether or not this sharing would be useful probably depends on if you
would continue to maintain your own non-GObject APIs for the various
QDiscs and classifiers. GObject makes the creation and maintenance of
the language bindings much easier so its basically necessary for my
I'm willing to switch the underlying implementation of LQL to use your
more featureful NL implementation if that means there won't be two
competing C APIs to the individual QDiscs etc.
