Use appleevents. Look at the appleevent-toolkit.lisp and
eval-server.lisp files in the examples folder of the MCL distribution.
There's a bit of learning (and Inside Mac reading) involved if you haven't used appleevents before, but once that hurdle is passed setting up the
communication is relatively simple.
