It's also one of the very few things I miss about AmigaOS.  Almost every
non-trivial Amiga program had an AREXX (Amiga's REXX variant) IPC port.  I
once wrote a little AREXX script that pulled status information from a GUI
FTP client, and use that to tell a graphics program how far across the
screen to render a fractal lighting bolt.  As the transfer neared
completion, the lightning bolt neared the ground.  When the transfer was
finished, a sound player played a thunderclap.  I think the whole program
was less than 40-50 lines.
