That's quite a generalization there. First, many WSGI implementations
don't have a file descriptor involved. Second, there are lots of ways to
serialize things, including e.g. transmitting file descriptors via
Unix-domain sockets. Third, nothing stops you from reading the data and
sending *that* via your IPC mechanism. Fourth, you can always do IPC via
