My initial thought would be to have the 2PC be the commit part of the C&C.
Any reason something that simple wouldn't work?
It's been a while since I did an in-depth read on either protocol, but I
don't think 2PC is necessarily anathma to a C&C approach. IIRC, what it
buys you is the ability to rollback failed, partial commits.
Mind if I ask a design question? Why such a complicated back end? All the
MUDs I've played on have had much simpler systems, and seemed to run just
fine. Was I missing out? :)
