ok, lemme get more into details

i want to use " bonjour " or "avahi" for my project BUT

Avahi does not implement this functionallity yet,

On Linux (at least on Debian), you need the mDNSResponder package  
provided by
Apple on the Bonjour downloads page.  Unfortunately,  Avahi_doesn't_yet
implement_all_of_the_API_functions_you will need !!!

SO i have two choices, use apple OR implement it into

avahi, but there is no interest from the avahi developer site

so i am not sure what todo right now.
