A network connection is probably your best bet.  You can then restrict
the kind of text that goes on the wire to sexpr syntax that is common
to Scheme and Lisp and implementing some RPC facility would be very
easy.  Boolean values would be a minor hassle.

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
