Interprocess Communication (IPC) made easy

How about drag-dropping a control from a toolbox palette into your application or active document (say an Office PowerPoint presentation) and set it to hold some data (a string, a number, a date, an image, an array of data etc.) and give it a unique producer id (autogenerated UUID/GUIDs included which are statistically unique numbers), allowing it to propagate (produce/broadcast) or receive (consume/listen) changed data cross-application and cross-machine boundaries?

Checkout "Plugs" at:

Originated as Delphi VCL controls (StringPlug, IntegerPlug, ImagePlug etc.), some later on available as ActiveX controls too (e.g. StringPlugX – more datatypes easily supported upon request)
