+Back-end: responsiveness for IPC
+--------------------------------
+
+Suricatta is implemented as process that launches functions for the selected module.
+This means that the IPC does not answer if Suricatta is doing something, specially if it is
+downloading and upgrading the system. This can be enhanced adding a separate thread for IPC and of course
+all required synchronization with the main modules.
