Nice idea, but it would have been a tad more true to the origin of the
names if "stdin", "stderr", and "stdout" were binary (as the re-use of
those fine names automatically implies to anyone who knows what
they're doing), and "textin", "textout", and "texterr" were the bogus
VMS/Windows corrupted versions of the dandy UNIX originals.
