By old mail server, you mean Enthought's server for mail.scipy.org
This is why we switched over to Google Groups

I was getting that from a google search
I guess redirects were never set up?

That server falls down all the time.
It's out of our control....

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.

e.g.

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.
