The routed comm system relies on each daemon having complete information as
to where every process is located, so the expectation was that only full
maps would ever be sent. Thus, the nidmap code is setup to always send a
full map.

I don't know how to even generate a "partial" map. I assume you are doing
something offline? Is this to update changed info? If so, you'll also have
to do something to update the daemon's maps or the comm system will break
