Re: need to read an entry from the db after reading config file
Thanks for your response, Kurt. After a bunch more hunting around,
I've basically come to same conclusion for when to do stuff, but the
how is proving more difficult. There are lots of places where
Operation's are constructed, but they all seem to have a ctx to start
with. All of the places that create a ctx seem to create it from an
existing ctx. How do I create a ctx, or is there a global ctx that
I'm supposed to use to genesis?

Assuming the configuration information is database specific, then
one can do the search as part of the db_open(). If its overlay
specific, I believe one can overlay a db_open to do the search in.
If the configuration information is global, then you just need
to hack the startup to do additonal stuff post read_config()
but prior to starting the listener thread.
In regards to your second question, one just needs to construct
a pseudo-Operation to do the search under. There are a number of
examples of such in the code.
