This is somewhat where the oAESis in the OSIS project is going. oAESis
in Linux currently consists of a server and a library, which acts as a
client to the server. All programs compiled with the library will send
messages to the server to do things.

This brings some problems to oVDIsis, of course, because it has to
share the workstations between processes. We're (CG) currently working
on this, using shared memory. oVDIsis is only a library which oAESis
and the programs are using.
