Write a python method that takes the name of the Emacs macro and a list of input values, passes it to emacs on the clientside, returns the result of processing back. Since we have already solved the problem of Emacs speaking to gnowsys server, this is going to give us a leap in application development using client side processing power, and server side memory/storage management.

Requirement: since currently we do not have a scalable emacs web-server, we can use the power of the clients' emacs and make the semantic desktops that we are building (gnowsys-mode, gnome-gnowser, mozilla-gnowser) to process the input and return results.

This will help: self-platform to use pyxpcom to provide a powerful editor like gnowsys-mode; gnome-gnowser to have gnowsys-mode kind of text input; ability to insert technical symbols, tables, equations among others.
