That works fine for batch processing type scenarios, certainly.

However, it doesn't work if you want to display a visual element in a 
window, or need access to the rich in memory data structure the LiveCode 
engine has (e.g. the object tree, variables containing arrays, or large 
strings etc).

It also won't ever work on iOS...
