As I wrote "I found many nice things (Pipe, Manager and so on), but
actually even
this seems to work:" yes I did read the documentation.

I was just surprised that it worked better than I expected even
without Pipes and Queues, but now I understand why..

Anyway now I would like to be able to detach subprocesses to avoid the
nasty code reloading that I was talking about in another thread, but
things get more tricky, because I can't use queues and pipes to
communicate with a running process that it's noit my child, correct?
