I was not aware of this fact :/ That's a pity.

I'll look at this and in general i'll look at those changes. I understand that
you're speaking about experiment.encapsulation branch.

Well it's a great idea, i though about that. However ...
I'm almost sure that we don't want to touch file handles inheritance/passing
between process on win32. Simply I don't know how to do that (I know
only about inheritance).

(+1 for simple and clear POSIX/unix architecture)

Second. For example java library gives you possibility to control only
stdin/stdout/stderr inputs of subprocess. And we want/need some java
interfaces to monotone.
