What about a TCP/IP based communication protocol? For those of you who know
unix think X11. The overhead isn't bad, and it would allow us to get around
any license restrictions there may be. We could also provide a public domain
stub that could be linked against by commercial programs.


Blender->TCP/IP->Public Domain Stub->Renderer

A nice side effect would be that the renderer could be on a different
machine. Cool for those with laptops/clusters.
