Currently Piper doesn't support inter instance communications, just because we never
had the time for it. (Sounds like a deja-vu) So we still have the luxury of a free
choose now.

By inter instance communication I'm trying to say this:

Piper                                    Piper
running on  --?KQML?--  running on
machine A                           machine B

It's the BL that will handle this communications, so we COULD just design what we need
and implement this. But I think a mayor feature would be if these communications were
based on a standard so it can comm. with other legacy systems to. Kqml seems to be
designed for this purpose. Why do you think
it isn't?
