good (I did compile/run on Linux, SCO and FreeBSD, trying to hit all of
the library combinations on those platforms).

no - I realize that, but at the point where the command is being
built, it already has the temporary file constructed, so I didn't
implement something in the C code for making a pipe (it would have
been redundant).  It's ifdef'd for UNIX because the code references
'cat', but that could be ported to DOS or Win32 w/o much problem.
