Please split features for easier tracking. The change, per se, has
merits: standard syntax and flexibility if using the X11 style (size
or position, size and position, ++ for referencing top left corner, --
for bottom right, etc).

Nice thing to see you keep on with the port idea, it will allow all
new kind of uses that are not even imagined now. There are other apps
which provide such system, under diverse names (shell, client, remote
pipe...), and all become more flexible and useful with such option. I
see someone mentions render farms, it could allow to control frame per
frame without having to restart Blender and reload data. Or create a
headless exporter and conversion tool (at worst, one would need Xvfb).
