Hmm. I wrote a client/server system a few years ago in which the server
even specified the UI for the client (ie. it could create menus etc.
in addition to being able to send images, and create hyperlinks etc.)
Basically, it was sending lisp programs to the client, and the client
was sending lisp programs to the server. Those were *real* program
objects. The lisp was scheme, and yes, we did solve the security

Interestingly, this system dies to politics of a large corporation...
though I stitill think a lot of good concepts were in it.
