It seems Jesse and I have been simultaneously masticating. Having now
chewed on this issue overnight, I can't see any reason why, given the
existence of an implementation of the current PEP, that it couldn't be
used to implement some *other* PEP dealing with a separate-process,
service-based model.

That I can't think of any reason why not is likely to mean that there
are half a dozen reasons I'm unaware of :-)
