[IPython-dev] Anyone done anything like this before?

I want to use ipython as a shell which will receive commands and then 
task a process to do things. The trick here is that I want to start the 
process from within ipython and monitor its stdin/stdout for commands. 
It is a message passing interface so events will come in async and I 
need the shell to be able to handle them. Is there something similar to 
this out there somewhere that I can look at for inspiration? Is this 
even possible?
