Sorry about coming late to this party, but if such a library could use
shared memory (which is implementable on both Unix and Windows) it
would be a particularly fast channel for inter-process data (assuming
something like pipes for the basic commands and synchronization)

I know with memory-mapped files on Windows that it can be a very
efficient strategy for random-file access as well.
