Oops, hit send too soon.  Mingw has named pipes, but they appear to
reside in a different namespace than the normal file system, and the
gnulib mkfifo() implementation current always fails with ENOSYS on
mingw.  Unless we find a way to expose named pipes in the normal file
system on mingw, then you are right that there's no work to do for
O_NONBLOCK on any file that mingw can open.
