Varigate8+, Voltage Block, as well as some Make Noise and Expert Sleepers modules use a system called 'Select Bus' (I think it was originally spec'd by Macro Machines or Mungo?) which can be used to not only send/receive clock but also initiate patch changes and some other neat stuff. They are basically using MIDI (or messages which are formatted similar to MIDI) to communicate between modules, from what I understand.

I think it would be cool if this were possible with Vector but I don't think it would happen with a firmware update. At least that is the impression I got when I spoke with Jim about it. It's still something I would be very excited to see, even if it would require the use of an extra header or something.
