Is it possible to portably create named pipes in Emacs Lisp?
"Portably" means here "to create in a system that has named pipes". I could use call-process or something like that with 'mkfifo', but that
seems quite POSIXy thing to do.

Since no-one else has offered any suggestions, i'm wondering if the `make-process` function with :connection-type `pipe` might do the job? i'm on Debian, not a Windows system, so haven't tried it on the latter
