I'm not sure this is the problem, I have a INN 2.2 setup with a
solaris/sparc writer and linux/intel readers and it works very well.

I keep thinking that maybe a caching reader should be implemented as a
storage API method. Then with small changes the simplified server could
write the local overview from a diablo-like header feed.
I'm not a good enough coder to directly help with the implementation,
but I'll be happy to help with the design and testing (I *don't* want
to use dreaderd!).
