I want a dual-console application for some multi-threaded output. The
main process spawns a second process in a second window, and directs
its readout through a pipe. That is, the second process is just a
dummy, print pipe directly to console.
It worked when I used the 'stdin= PIPE' keyword in Popen, but passing
my own pipe handle on the command line isn't working. The keyword is

I thought so too. The web seems to say that on Linux they are, and on
Windows, you need to call DuplicateHandle for it.
By the way, there are a few solutions to the inheritance problem.
1. Override __init__ and __del__ in a subclass.
2. Assign DummyClass= Popen._make_inheritable
3. Override Popen._execute_child to call _make_inheritable, then call
the super method.
