cross gdb with sim as separate process

I have been putting together a cross-gdb for one of my customers that 
is based on one of my company's simulators. It seems to be working OK 
when I structure this as a simulator linked directly into GDB. Longer 
term, the customer does not want this. They want the simulator to be 
a separate process to which gdb connects at run time. This seems 
reasonable, but has this been done for simulator targets? I would 
appreciate pointers on how to get started on making this 
modification. How do the two processes communicate under, say, the 
cygwin32 environment, which is one of the hosts we need to support?
