[issue3831] Multiprocessing: Expose underlying pipe in queues

New submission from Steve Smith <tarkasteve at gmail.com>:

Both Connection and Pipe objects expose their underlying file
descriptors, which is useful for accessing them in an event-driven
manner.  However the higher-level Queue does not make the underlying
pipe available; to get at them you must access private member attributes
which is fragile.  It would be good to have a well-defined API for
accessing either the pipe objects or the underlying FDs.
