Proper way of connecting to apps

Is there some official way of connecting to application objects?

I know that i can use NSConnection, however that is not 'the right and clean 

I want something like this: [workspace connectApplication:'ApplicationName'] 
that will return distant proxy for application representative object (it should 
be application itself or something that forwarsd to the app). If the app is not 
running it should be launched. Wait for it to be launched and then retry 

Moreover, in the future we can add mechanism/interface for using another object 
than app itself if authors of the app care about security. But it is not 
necessary at the moment.

I think this method can be very useful gnustep extension to support application 
services and better cooperation of applications. ( )
