I am just looking at the graphical client code now as there have been other
requests for it to work with the socket server. I get the feeling that this will
either be a 5 minute job or 5 weeks...watch this space...

AcePerl is currently being changed by its author (Lincoln Stein) so that it will
talk directly to the socket server rather than via the intermediate acedb code
which used to be necessary to handle the RPC stuff. I expect that Lincoln will
post here when this work is done.
