the server side composes calls to a selection of standard functions provided
by Sys and (in production use) the authentication modules:
sys->mount, sys->bind, sys->open, etc.

see for instance exec() in /appl/lib/srv.b which is the
core of the implementation of the rstyx service.

the client calls sys->export.
