I'm not entirely sure what the benefit would be.  You'd have to have some ipc 
mechanism between the various processes, and I think you'd just be 
duplicating the existing issues with that, really..  The existing 
communications between backends and frontends is just that, really, and you'd 
be splitting things up even more.  I think it'd just lead to more problems, 

Might be easier to fix the bugs causing things to stop responding, instead. =)
