Richard, thank you for pointing out the flaw in my code. Still, note  
that the lookup time is still very very low.

I'm not really concerned with the time to populate as my goal is to  
grab a number from every incoming packet and map that to a process id  
so that I can route the packet.

I really like globally registered names since they take care of  
distributing the pids across the cluster. It doesn't seem they scale,
