I would like you stated indirectly as well probably never use that kind
of IPC for shrink-wrapped software.
In my project I have all the source and all the control, the end user
can't touch
anything but some gui which starts up if he presses the power button I
deliver to him together with all other hardware.
For me is the performance the critical point which forces me to use
the fixed base address kind of shared memory. And the main problem
is windows with it's (apparent?) non-configurable DLL delay load
relocation address algorithm.
