im wondering if -- instead of providing a separate 'cm' binary for console work -- i instead add an 'eval server' to Grace? that way one could start Grace and then send text to its port for evalling from other apps.  It would sure make things a lot more robust  as it would be exactly like typing into grace's editor.  and certainly less difficult to maintain from my end!

juce has a InterprocessCommunication thread that i can be used to do this.  Todd Inagalls and I had it working quite nicely for sending/receiving stuff from Grace to a common lisp (sbcl i think)
