IMHO, to do network connection WELL, you need to have a clean separation
between DSP and GUI, with a DSP<->GUI transport mediated by the host.
That's the most obvious example, and one that's sure to be fought over
during GMPI design because of the extra coding overhead involved.

It's possible to do it without, but then you need the host to do VNC-style
gui trapping and emulation.
