Is there a portable way to tell if data is available on a pipe?

I need some way to find out if a pipe has data available for
a read without blocking if it does not.
"select", unfortunately, doesn't work on pipes on Windows.
I think there's something proposed for Python 3000, but that's
not useful now.
I'd like to avoid having a thread to manage each pipe, but if I
have to, so be it.
