Two notes:

1.  Read/write to/from process is limited to standalones running on 
the same computer (it doesn't  support communication between 
standalones on different networked computers).

2.  Jan Schenkel's exemplar socket communication library, 
lib_STAMP.rev, is available to subscribers to the revolution_ipc 
group: <>.
