I must confess that as a new user of RC, I have not made use of the
named pipe feature. However, I have needed such a feature for a long
time. (Now that I know it is there I will definitely try it out.) I
would like to add my support for continuing the feature and fixing the
problems. Which brings up my next question. What are the problems with
named pipes as they are currently implemented?
