Currently, the only way to connect 2 processes running on the same box 
is to use loopback interface.

In a short time we are going to add in-process communication capability, 
but AFAIU that's not what you need.

If you want to contribute the code to use pipe or shared memory for 
inter-process communication, you are welcome. Alternatively, you can 
hire us to implement it for you at desk at fastmq.com.
