IPC channel in .NET 2.0 (remoting)

Good news is that MS has finally included the 'named-pipe' channel into the core .NET 2.0 remoting framework. The channel is known as IPC channel and enables on-box communication between processes on the same m/c.
It has, additionally, the capability to secure that channel with an ACL. You can use an Access Control List with this particular channel to limit the number of users that can access it.
