Is there any other way to communicate between seperate applications in a more developed way that communication with other means thans pipes. CLI is quite old fashinoed way and i don't want to cause network traffic to NIC so is there any other possibility to communicate with diverse amount of applications, make queries etc in single host without suffocating NIC nor using robust CLI?

The thing is that I want more flexible communication system that would allow me change xmms skin on the fly by some sort of system call and also would like to make query for random softwares about their behavior.

MOST IMPORTANTLY NOT SUFFOCATING NIC NOR MAKING DIRECT LINKS BETWEEN CHILD PROCESESSES ETC! There must by way to communicate discreetly in single workstation ekonomy. And did i mention that CLI is too robust.
