The spacenavd daemon can be used directly as a drop-in replacement
to the 3DxWare daemon. It can communicate with the official magellan
SDK, and thus any program compiled with it can work with spacenavd
transparently without any change or need of recompilation.
Also, spacenavd provides an alternative communication protocol, for
programs that use libspnav, that doesn't require an X server, as the
original protocol does.
