unlike Plan 9, Inferno allows an application to inject Dis
code into a remote machine.  the Limbo load operator
takes an argument in the name space, allowing the Dis
code to come from anywhere, including an arbitrary
part of the application's name space, exported to the remote
machine.  /appl/cmd/rcmd.b shows a simple application of
this technique, but more elaborate schemes are certainly possible.
it seems attractive to provide the service in the name space,
avoiding the need to dial.
