That's not completely accurate. I'm faily certain you can use named
pipes with WaitForMultipleObjects, so you could probably implement this
relatively easily with the win32eventreactor.

If they support non-blocking operations it should be easy to implement
using t.i.abstract.FileDescriptor as a basis; if they don't you can
probably steal most of the code from the win32 process support.
