Just reading one more post (and a FAQ) on the win32 pipe breakage (sewage
all over the hard-disk, traffic rerouted through the bit-bucket, you aren't
getting to work anytime soon Mrs. Programmer) and wondering why we have a
FAQ instead of having the win32pipe stuff rolled into the os module to fix
it.  Is there some incompatibility?  Is there a licensing problem?
