What about the grooming/scanning cycles?

Thanks, the code is fairly readable in this breakdown.  The mhd
initialization looks rather worse, and if we decided to do this, I
might focus on simplifying that.  (Maybe I'd use the classic inetd
socket-stdin/stdout style rather than systemd-specific APIs.)

But I'm not sure a web-api-only functionality makes much sense -
unless there is also a sibling debuginfod to do the scanning/grooming,
in which case ... how does this help?
