Well, I was thinking more along the lines of defining a protocol independant 
interface in Octave, with something like a plugin system for specific types 
of communication. That way, if someone specifically wants to use Octave 
with CORBA or DCOP or whatever, it would just be a matter of writing the 
plugin and setting the relevant Octave environment variable in the startup. 
After the basic interface is in place (along with one or two basic plugins 
such as pipes and sockets), the burden of coding up other protocols would 
be on those who have a specific need for them.

With this approach, what needs to be done initially is an evaluation of the 
current system and the definition of a new or evolved one at the (Octave) 
user end. This would not initially involve any specific protocols.
