I've been reconsidering renaming the per-translator entity, henceforth
referred to as a factory, of libchannel to something more substantial
then `class' and use that term for the method holding structs for both
channel and factory structs.  Class also gives the feel of

But factory is also a unsatisfying term, it's a bit difficult to talk
about layering two factories.  The alternatives I can think of are
`server' and `hub'.

Calling it a server is a bit of a stretch and a bit to vague.  I
leaning towards calling it a `hub', which gives a nice concreate image
of what one is dealing with, also it's very concise.

But I would like some other suggestions or at least a second opinion
on this matter.
