It is a "GOTO" in disguise; your app send of a WM_MESSAGE and you're off hunting where that is consumed.

Sorry, but the messenger-idea is a solution is search of a problem; there's more efficient ways of inter-app communication, and they have been around for some time.

In the rare case where multiple machines need to communicate over the internet, I'd opt for my own sockets; even XMPP would be preferable to a "new" solution, as it limits my dependencies - there would be enough alternatives if the provider of the solution goes belly up.
