have a fairly tight integration between the framework and a JMeter load generator, and I was
thinking that it might be possible to connect to a jmeter-server process in a similar way
to how the JMeter GUI/master does it. But doing it programmatically rather than using the
GUI. Is that a possibility? I haven’t been able to find anything about that in the documentation,
so I guess even if it may be possible, it might not be “supported behaviour” in future

You can launch the JMeter client in non-GUI mode from the command-line
(or Ant etc.) and tell it to run a remote test.
