[Pipet Devel] GMS- Overflow communication

I've been thinking a bit about how GMS and Overflow should communicate. Here's a

GMS links with the Overflow libraries. 
When it needs to compute something, it calls getOutput() on an Overflow subnet
*in a thread* and returns the result.
Meanwhile, the input node(s) of the Overflow network use GMS callbacks to get
their data.

I think this would be both the simplest (no socket/pipe/shared memory required)
and the fastest (though speed doesn't matter much here) to do things.
