I got the idea from the well known TSM addon, where, I presume, an external application writes to the saved variables file, to be read later by the addon itself. So the communication can be two ways, albeit with the /reload in between.

I have also noticed many times that WoW loses character settings if you do not log out but crash out/lose connection, which also follows the same "save files on /reload" rule...
