Yep, A. But..

GMS has the ability to wrap non textmode applications. It's done by having a
specialisted plug-in for an application you want to embed. And it has the
ability to let graphical applications dock into a gms window. I never brought
this to attension I think, but it's already fully functional. I'll write a
plugin 'around' the PL, do one for BL->BL communication, one for
data-encryption, etc, etc.
I can disable appications wrapping in Piper-mode to keep everybody happy :)

To another instance of a BL, to\from the localhost to determine the system load
to name a few.
