Expose search results to another app

I am not quite across NT systems, but perhaps either RPC or a Socket can be used to allow another application query Everything backend?

Would help to implement https://www.ghisler.ch/board/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=72211

Everything uses WM_COPYDATA for IPC.

IPC

The command line interface (ES) uses IPC to perform searches and includes source code.
