Ok. If I understand you correctly, you are proposing some kind of Conduit 
backend (or meta-backend if you will), which supplies data to beagle from all 
the different sources that Conduit handles. I think it is possible to do 
something like this. Either by using libbeagle or python bindings to send 
data to beagle from Conduit or pulling data from Conduit from beagled itself. 
Care has to be taken because Conduit and beagle might not be started at the 
same time, but I dont see logically this can be done.
