Done, using the existing function "hook_set" (this function has been added in script API, it was available only in C plugins).

It would be good if you could write to a process created with hook_process - something like:

weechat_hook_process_write(process, data)

so that it's the same as if you wrote to the process's STDIN.

I was trying to make a plugin that let you run programs in a weechat window, but without this, it isn't possible as a script. The alternative would be to use popen but then you lose the callback, and would have to fork or use a thread to monitor the process.
