I took a deeper look into OSC.

It should be no problem implementing it, it simply is a on-the-wire 
format and it should be useful since some interesting programs uses it.

But, other than that it look uninteresting, I could just as well

 - $ cat | ssh host "cat > file; notify_program"
 - use snmp

and the main drawback with it is that it is an one-way communication
and it "only" transfers ints, single presision floats, strings and 

One problem though, one has to define the semantics och the data send.

- Can someone point to some wellrocognized doc for that?

- What are the conventions?
