Chris, it is quite easy to make tcp services survive snapshots in
Squeak. ComancheNG (and maybe Comanche) do this quite nicely. If you
design the protocol carefully, you could even make connections survive
(if your connection is independent of any underlying physical socket
connection). I would probably have the connections terminate, but keep
the actual service available across snapshots.
