That's where you're wrong.  Named pipes DO exist on cygwin, although there
are still some bugs being hammered out when trying to have multiple
simultaneous writers to a named pipe.  Also, whereas you can do <>pipe on
Linux, that won't work on cygwin (where named pipes must be read-only owr
write-only).
