You might want to take a look at the Python-SIMPL toolkit (http://
www.icanprogram.com/06py/main.html).   SIMPL uses a Send/Receive/Reply
interprocess messaging scheme which will naturally queue requests for
you.   Without too much effort you may be able to reorient your scheme
to eliminate the batch file entirely.
