I agree with this, even though in theory (but not in practice)
creative use of unix sockets (sorry windows, perhaps some
port-allocating and URL mangling can be done instead) and conventions
for those would allow even better almost-like-embedded results,
methinks.  That may still be able to happen.

The biggest improvement to that situation is the recent drastic
reduction in use of shared memory, and that only became a thing recently.
