Of course I am aware of emacs-async. If I understood correctly, it does
not provide the functionality I am looking for. For every future a new
Emacs process is started. In contrast, I want to start a separate Emacs
process and then communicate with it while it is running.

Extending the emacsclient protocol is possible and quite easy. One can
use process-send-string in the backend Emacs process to send data to the
frontend Emacs process.

See here for my current experiment:
