I would say the MUSCLE is more like framework. You should use as much as
possible the original code and implement your specific features over the
existing classes. I wouldn't say you need another process, but another
thread is very wise in my opinion. You could read sources for BeShare
(sample implementation of chat client using MUSCLE as the framework).

BeShare you can download from http://www.bebits.com/. It has sources
included. There is compatible client for Linux and Windows too.
