I also came to think that this is a better solution. Neither the client nor
the server get any hard links to the other one's environment. Using a proxy
Erlang process that does the encoding/decoding is easy and generic. Also,
handling Erlang data types on the Delphi side is bulky.

Jilani: I have the stdio interface already zipped somewhere, and I will try
to package the rest too. Maybe I could use the opportunity and publish them
on Jungerl... But I'm not sure when, because of the Easter holiday.
