Orchestrating Blender via Python module

I’m new to Blender and I’m still waiting on the Blender-as-Python-module build to finish, but, in the mean time, is it possible to use the Blender GUI for visuals while interacting with it via the module? I’m unaware if Blender runs as a server that takes requests via the Python module or the Python module runs fully independently of the GUI (headless, essentially).


IIRC, the building blender as a Python module is headless.
