I would be really interested in augmenting the comm protocol with the ability to handle request/reply messages when the request originates from the front-end.
The idea would be to register (unique) request handlers by key (corresponding to the request type). The request handler would return the content of the reply message.

request_handlers['state_request'] = compute_state_reply

where compute_state_reply returns the data to be put in the reply message.

however, these would have to use the shell channel.
