Hmm, I just found that this can't be quite valid anymore.  Using
socketpairs is way faster, even when using Cygwin 1.5.10.  I digged
in the openssh-unix-dev ML archives and the decision to switch to
USE_PIPES has been made 3 1/2 years ago.  I'm wondering if it's
time to switch back to socketpairs...
