How about a simpler question. I see in the documentation that LH can use a network connection to remotely read. Can a server for that protocol be made for the RPi? That would be super awesome deluxe for me, and assuming it's just a serial-to-TCP protocol should be nearly trivial to write (heck, netcat might already just do it).

Basically, if you have to ask the question, your are probably not ready to attempt the task.
