I'm a little familiar with SAMP-enabled applications, and I'll try to  
help if I can. To begin, I believe Aladin does provide both a client  
and hub interface. If you want to test ds9 and Aladin as clients  
talking to a separate hub, you should try running a standalone hub  
such as JSAMP [1], or Perl SAMP [2]. Depending on how this works out,  
you'll know whether to contact the SAMPy developers (Luigi Paioro),  
or the ds9 developers (Bill Joye). For reference, you can find links  
to several SAMP-enabled applications on the IVOA wiki [3], including  
the what version of the application supports SAMP.

(I don't know how many others on the AstroPy mailing list are using  
SAMP hubs and applications, so I'm cross-posting this to the SAMP  
standard mailing list. It's not really the place for user support,  
but hopefully you'll hear from one of the ds9 or SAMP developers.)

So busy keeping the compiler happy,
I forgot what I was trying to do.
