Getting launchd working

Has anyone actually gotten launchd working for running their own TCP/IP daemon?

Unfortunately the launch interface is undocumented (note the suspicious lack of the launch(3) manpage), but from reading launch.h for the API and launchproxy.c for an example, I was able to determine that the correct course of events goes as follows:

launch_data_set_string(msg, LAUNCH_KEY_CHECKIN);
resp = launch_msg(msg)

launch_data_dict_lookup(resp, LAUNCH_JOBKEY_SOCKETS);

Unfortunately I can't get this working -- response launch_data_t ("resp") is of type LAUNCH_DATA_ERRNO. The error is 13 (EACCESS). Apparently my daemon doesn't have permissions to get the response to LAUNCH_KEY_CHECKIN...?

Anyone know how to get this working (or an alternative method to get active FDs from within the daemon?)
QUOTE Thanks
