i think it's just a proof of concept, but looks interesting.
In the moment the project seems to be dead :-(

With such an approach of a parent-application which is done for
the networking stuff, and a child-application which is the
"cruncher" i think one can solve differente problems. Ok, one
can GEt problems with such an approach too :-)

Automatic update of the "child" to a new version could be a cool
feature, but also a security-breach...
