Yes, I know that csnap does not use the ioctl's, but Daniel said:
"Maybe csnap will end up talking to it the same way, who knows.  I just
always feel like I got something icky on myself when I call an ioctl."
I was just agreeing that the ioctls are ugly and  csnap should not
use the ioctls directly.

Why doesn't cman have a libcman?
