call our method.  This means that Windows Scripting code \(vbscript or
jscript\) can make use of the send command.

Finally, given a suitable DCOM environment it should also be possible
to implement the -displayof feature via Distributed COM. However, I
don't see much call for this - network sockets are a lot simpler to
use than DCOM.

# Security considerations

The implementation of this TIP was backed out due to security considerations.
Older versions of Windows allowed access to the exposed COM service without
authentication.

In newer versions of Windows the default is sane and this security concern is
not valid anymore.
