    nice work! Very helpful!

    Do you use lsof to find the Apps?

    Thanks! Yes, WNU uses lsof to determine open files, pipes, directories, etc. I spent most of the time that went into WNU on the IOKit code to deal with devices and volumes, the lsof part is rather simple. I did not dig into the lsof source but would be very interested in system-level alternatives to forking it. Do you know of any?
