The service broker is a brand new user contribution at www.erlang.org.

It is a simple (but hopefully useful) mechanism for brokering and
supervision of services for service providers and their users. When
either part of the service dies or selects to disconnect from the
service, the other part is notified about this. The service broker may
be for many purposes, such as dynamic syncronizing of application
startup, protocol negotiations, inter application supervision,
implementation of safe calls etc. A man page (as comment in the
module) and a test program are also supplied.
