As I already said, script-fu-server is nothing but a code example to
show you how a plug-in can export the PDB functionality. If you actually
need such an interface, I suggest that you start from scratch after
having understood how script-fu-server works.
If I would be in the need to control GIMP from outside, I'd write an
extension that exports the PDB over D-Bus. That should be relatively
easy and it would be useful enough that we should consider to include it
instead of the script-fu-server code, which is pretty much useless
except as an example.
