dbus is the best solution for me too; IMHO we have to think about
remote scripting as "a long term solution", where blender player can
be remote controlled by any running application (and not only by the
web plugin) and dbus should be perfect for this purpose (other
solutions can be using a pipe or message queues [msgget/msgsnd])

In a win32 environment, I think that ActiveX technology can fit the
task (IMHO it's better to use a native implementation).

yes, it's the best approach to me too
