For the record, the background for this idea was some discussion on IRC about maybe adding some kind of IPC interface to OpenTTD that would allow other local software such as Discord or perhaps Steam to query status of the game, and help with matchmaking with friends. The idea here being that if you were playing singleplayer you could simply invite your friends to the game and it would be converted to a network server.
