Yep, that's what I was thinking of :-)

This is still blocked on not having a sensible solution for Windows
support, right?

Windows can't do pipes as such (afaik), but you could do CreateFile/CreateFileMapping/MapViewOfFile - basically, the Windows equivalent of mmap. You could then use this shared mmaped block to pass the data back and forth between the processes. You could implement a couple of wrapper functions to make this mmaped block look like a pipe to the rest of the code.
