You would need to combine this with fork and write quite a bit of C code.  Also, the pipe and fork system calls are limited to POSIX systems (you would have to adapt the code substantially for the Windows version).

I think Jussi is interested in a pure Gambit Scheme solution using threads, primarily to explore how this can be done with Gambit.  It has the advantage of being portable to all the platforms Gambit runs on.
