Well, you're going to have to have some way of communicating between
the server and the plugin anyway.  I don't know much about named pipes
either, but I'm pretty sure you could call select() on them.
There's also a method for curses windows, nodelay(), which will cause
getch() to be non-blocking.  Using this, you wouldn't even need select()
at all, you could just take turns polling the keyboard and the server.

| local connections, although I really don't want to do this.
