binary interface

stretching further, what about
  * one buffer per repl
  * raw pipe io for transferring binary files, or temp files
  * one modeless bidirectional comm channel

one buffer per repl: this makes it easier to do sane syntax
highlighting, by reusing other interaction code.

so, i need to find a way to open multiple consoles on a running scheme
system. unix sockets make this relatively easy.
