Yes, the problem is that there is only one registered server name - if
several ports, then a way to identtify which one is addressed needs to be

Hmm, though! :-) A solution might be splitting sdl.erl in two modules, one
using the driver, one using ports. This way, every one could get what they
need, without trouble (except for you, Dan, since there will be more code to
maintain! :-)

Btw, does anyone have experience on how ports compare in speed with using a
TCP connection instead?
