Yes to both!

There's a couple of things one has to do w.r.t asking the socket for
information rather than relying on that being set in the os environment,
etc. But you should have a fairly straightforward time, especially if you
take the same approach the lua code is taking. Just exploit the heck out of
pattern matching, and you can fold most of the asserts and substring checks
into them. Look up binary pattern matching as well.

And if something doesn't match, just crash the server. You can always do
the error handling later if need be.
