Howl has several problems.
One is that it is blocking your application as you need to enter Howl's
own runloop. You can try to 'isolate' it in a separate thread, but then
again, AppKit itself isn't thread-safe.
Another problem is that certain facilities Apple's NSNetService classes
depend on aren't implemented, eg. browsing for default domains.
There are some more but those two are the first that come to mind.
