I prefer to instead keep the _function_ of daemons to a minimum, and run
as many purpose-built, lightweight daemons as needed to build the
functionality I want.

Reasonable people can differ, as it strikes me as perfectly reasonable
to build TCP translation as a separate layer on top of base UDP
communications.  This let's those who want to avoid TCP from being
forced to deal with it, and makes any TCP policy encoded into the daemon
plugable via alternative implementations.
