The Service() interface is primarily designed for direct
plugin-to-plugin communications, and providing complex data structures
from within keymacros.conf would be really difficult.

An easier approach may be to implement a gateway to the SVDRPCommand()
interface, as this interface accepts strings as command parameters.

In any case, you'll need a plugin that offers such simple calls, with
static parameters and no returned information processed. Do you have any
specific plugin in mind?

Cheers,

Udo
