Connecting to applications

I want to create 'Common scripting environment', where you can tie applications 
and their abilities together to complete your task. See


From applications point of view: To be able to do this, applications have to 
advertise public methods and objects. From script point of view: Users need to 
connect to the application.

The later thing needs to be implemented in steptalk. My question is, that 
whether there is a clean way of connecting to an application? What i want is to 
launch an application if it is not running and connect to the running 
application. By connecting I mean to get distant object proxy for the 
application (some well defined object).

I have seen, that there is -[NSWorkspace _connectApplication:] and this method 
seems to be what i want. Is it possible to document its behaviour and make it 
public as an GNUstep extension?
