For me the confusion with rtadvd/rtsold/rtsol is due to the choice of
My gut reaction when seeing programs "foo" and "food" is that the
former is the client that asks a one-shot question and the latter is
the daemon that runs forever and answers all the various "foo"
I can see how the rtadvd/rtsol names were initially chosen. I just
can't see how to prevent the obvious confusion between with rtsold.
