Message passing allows you to send something to another thread or perhaps process or machine(s), to be processed on the remote end.

Usually, you have a fixed number of "messages" that the other side understands, but what if you could send *code* in the stream, even across process or network?

Doing that would allow your service to be extensible by its clients. As the clients upgrade their capabilities the server follows suit, sometimes without changing it at all.

There are two problems with this - complexity and security.

There is a solution to both - something like a Pike VM like this Regex as a Tiny "Threaded" Virtual Machine[^]

Except with more than 7 or so instructions. It could be built up to be mini VM that understands say 20 different bytecode instructions. If you find that's eating up bandwidth add more instructions that do more complicated things, making them "chunkier", until the VM is mature. Once it gets there you can do like I said with the extensible service.

This is either the dumbest idea I've had in the past two weeks to the best. I'm still not sure. Maybe coffee will clear it up. Big Grin | :-D
