Go back to my original post. I posited a means of communication which
allows one module to "call" a function in another module, purely by
writing to stdout. All four (or however many) modules would run
concurrently, and be waiting on stdin most of the time. Of course, the
same technique could be used for true concurrency; with such a simple
message-passing technique, there's no reason to wait for your response
before continuing.
