For those who don't know, ToolTalk is a "message bus" system;
there's a server that dispatches messages to listening applications.
The listeners and message providers are all ToolTalk clients.
I don't know how widespread ToolTalk support is; I think it
originated on Sun systems, and it's used as the message bus for CDE.
I don't know if it's included on Linux or if there are implementations
for Windows or MacOS platforms.
But I'd be interested in finding out. ;)
