in fact, this is the usual way.  most daemons create either pipes or sockets 
somewhere so that other processes (clients) can easily find them.

if you don't like creating and deleting them, you can do it once (at 
installation time) and just reuse the same pipe/socket every time. (i think 
mySQL does so)
