Well, I have already explained why I want it exactly there :)

Yes and no, it depends on how you expose the feature. 
When I said I want a single property, I meant of course that it can be enabled in it's most basic form 
with just property. That does not exclude that more properties can be exposed to offer more functionality.

The big advantage of Ondrej's functionality is that it will work on all platforms.
SimpleIPC will not work on all platforms.

Yes. I had thought about this too, we are of the same idea :-)

Let's first see how Ondrej does it.
