Saying "bidirectional pipe" is descriptive too. :-) They're the same thing.
As we discussed in great detail here at the time, `pipe' now creates a
bidirectional pipe, i.e. it creates a socketpair and does not call
shutdown.  This follows what `pipe' nowadays does on FreeBSD, Solaris, and
some other systems.  (And of course, it's a feature got by just doing less
rather than adding anything.)
