I was thinking that might be reasonable and avoids the http  
connection overhead.  As long as the call is totally controlled by  
you and doesn't include user input, I don't see any security risks.   
Does the other app need access to your web server environment - aka  
$_SERVER?  If so, that would throw out both options and you'd have to  
figure out how to rework your app to play nice with it.

FYI, an old version of one of our apps used curl to tickle a mail  
queue every 5 minutes and worked fine.
