Doesn't Avahi have an in-process mode? Or does it always require an out-of-
process service?

D-Bus on Windows, for example, looks for dbus-launch.exe on PATH and starts 
it. If it's missing, QtDBus still compiles and you can ship your application, 
but refuses to connect anywhere. We could go for a similar approach, but I 
don't like it.
