I concur.  I'm too new to Revolution to comment specifically.  
However, I have have been happy in using TCP/IP for inter-process 
communication (IPC) in general.  It is platform independent and 
does not care whether the processes are on the same computer, are 
on a local network or are far away.

So far, I see no reason to limit this to TCP; there may be good 
uses for UDP in IPC.  (In another world I use a robust 
communications layer over UDP for IPC.)
