What's the likelihood of something like this making it into a 4.2 update, 
or maybe
an early 4.3 update? There seems to be a lot of interest in the forums and 
on the
mailing list for a way to add custom HGCM servers and clients, and the 
pack interface seems like a good way to support this use case.
